House of La Obra Pía de San Martín façade by Isidro Villoldo

Built in the mid-16th century on to the exterior of the east side of the walls, between turrets numbers 3 and 4. It was used for buying cereal which, after it had been stored and milled, was used to bake bread on Saturdays for the poor people in the town.

The front is by Isidro Villoldo, who made an excellent high-relief showing St Martin on horseback.
