Town Hall / Ipeñarrieta Palace

14/10/2012
  • Town:
    Urretxu

This palace was built by Ipeñarrieta Cristobal, the chief accountant and finance director of King Philip III in the early seventeenth century.

It has a sober and austere facade of pink and veined limestone on which two marble family shields are placed.

The front door is very simple and it contains the legend:
In house of he who swears there shall be misfortune.

The upper floors are adorned with wrought iron balconies and a magnificent carved wooden eave crowns the noblest facade of the old villa.  Although the interior has been completely transformed, several paintings have been preserved in the Meeting Room.
