The building of this tower dates from the 15th Century. It is also known as Palace of the Mújica. The façade is made of granite masonry, divided into two levels with no decoration. On one of the corners, a large tower stands. It has a square floor plan, and its parapet is crenelated. The tower's entrance has a semi-circular arch. Inside we find a very well-preserved coffered ceiling. King Alfonso XII stayed at this building, while the writer Enrique Larreta decided to place the main character of his novel Don Ramiro's Glory in it. At present, the building houses the headquarters of the Provincial Council.

We came here during our trip to Spain over Christmas. We weren't sure what to expect from the inside, but all we seemed able to see was a large scale nativity tableau. It was surprisingly interesting, but rather crowded with visitors as we all shuffled around looking at it. Other than that, we weren't able to see anything, apart from doors to council offices. So, the outside was very interesting, but I'm not sure what you'd see at other times of the year.

The museum gives a history in Spanish and English about the Vettones, Celtic people who carved the stone "verraco" boars. These "iron age" people lived in the area from about the 6th to the 1st century BC. We found five stones scattered about Avila.

Our guide brought us to this to see the patio of the tower which is used for receptions. It has a bronze age statue in it of a bull as well vestiges of the fortress. In the interior room it has an arrow slit which guards the front door from the patio.

Built-in the 15th century. The granite masonry façade is divided into two undecorated storeys. At one corner there is a tower with a square floor plan, with turrets and watchtowers.
It was designated a National Monument in 1983 and is currently used as the offices of the Provincial Council of Ávila.
The former stables are home to a Vetton Culture Interpretation Centre. The displays are well laid out and include Spanish and English interpretive signs.
I found the explanation and examples of the Verracos to be the most interesting. These stone sculptures of boars and bulls were carved from blocks of granite and range from less than a metre in length to more than 2.5 metres. To date, more than 400 Verracos have been discovered.

Has both Spanish and Celtic roots. Dates back to the 15 th century. Stunning from the outside and interesting inside although it functions as a governmental building. If you speak Spanish you might score a tour inside if you ask a few questions. We did
