Description

Built between 1748 and 1768, this bishops' palace shows a real Italian (particularly Roman) Baroque influence, especially in its painted façade, so it's no surprise to learn that the architect, Baltasar Canestro, came from Italy. The patio features two levels. On the first floor, the broken pediments above the windows are adorned with medallions in relief depicting figures of bishops. The courtyard, decorated with sculpted coats of arms, leads to the main staircase crowned by a dome. The small circular chapel is well worth a visit.
