Facing North, this construction stands on Calle Lope Núñez, a street that leads into the old town from the Gate of San Vicente. Ordered by Suero del Águila, it was built in the first third of the 16th century and is characterised by its austerity and size.

Built in granite ashlar work, the long front, flanked by two very low towers, which show that it was used for defence purposes, boasts a Plateresque style and has a lintelled porch with coats of arms framed in a panel made up of spheres; the main window stands above it, decorated with grotesco artwork.

Of particular interest are the unfinished central courtyard, with arcades decorated with flowers and coats of arms from the various lineages of Ávila, and the coffered ceiling above the staircase.

The main front boasts an animal sculpture from Vetton times.

It was designated a National Monument in 1976 and is currently used as the World Heritage Cities Building, the Municipal Archive and the Department of Heritage and Tourism.
