Palacio de Meres

Palace founded in the first half of the 15th century by Gonzalo Rodríguez de Argüelles, King Juan II’s accountant, around a late medieval defensive tower. It is one of the best Asturian rural palaces, very well preserved. The complex was expanded at the end of the 7th century by the Marquis de la Paranza.

The palace has a symmetrical structure on its main façade in which two towers of three heights flank a central body of two levels, which has three lowered arches on the lower floor that give access to the entrance hall, while on them are arranged on the upper floor there are three large openings with raised balconies, the openings being surrounded by ear moldings, typically Baroque. In the towers, the lintel windows alternate with the balconies that preside over each of these rooms on the first floor.
