The Inquisition House

The popularly known as the “Inquisition House” is a beautiful construction from the 16th century, that accommodates in its artistic facade the coats of arms of the families of the village linked to the Holy Office: (from the left to the right) Puga, García Gamba, Bahamonde, Holy Office and Mosquera-Sandoval. The most important figure of the Inquisition in the village was Mr Pedro Vázquez de Puga, whose beautiful Renaissance sepulchre lies in St. Domingos church. This house was the see of the Holy Office in charge of watching over the fulfilment of the catholic Faith.
