Palace of Los Águila future centre of the Prado Museum in Ávila

The construction of this building was ordered in the 16th century by Miguel del Águila. Built in granite masonry and ashlar work, it has an outstanding Renaissance-style front facing south with a lintelled door with corbels framed by slender columns finished off with candelabrum reliefs and coats of arms. There is a balcony above the door, also framed by the same type of columns and candelabrum reliefs.

It was designated a National Monument in 1969 and is currently being restored for use as a centre of the Prado Museum in Ávila.
