Palace of the Fernandez de Mesa family

This former stately home in calle Blanco Belmonte, in the heart of the Jewish Quarter,  was formerly home to the Fernández de Mesa family and the Counts of las Quemadas. It was originally built in the 17th century, and was renovated in the 20th century to adapt it for its use as the Higher School of Dramatic Art and Dance. It was recently declared a Site of Cultural Interest, and the most striking features are the façade and the interior courtyards. The façade is made up of two floors with lintels, and a balcony with a curved pediment at the top. The stone doorway bears the coat of arms of the Counts of las Quemadas. Inside, the rooms are arranged around two beautiful courtyards with porticos.
