House of the Argollas

  • Rey Street, 18
  • Open 24 hours a day

Dating back to the 13th century, it was a crucial stage in the history of Plasencia and the whole of Spain. In 1475, the wedding procession of Juana la Beltraneja left from here to marry King Alfonso V of Portugal, a ceremony that took place in the Plaza Mayor. The rings on its façade indicate the benefits of this house on the right of asylum, a privilege by which any person who had committed a crime could take refuge in it.

Anything to improve?
