Palace of Beniel Marquis

Palacio del Marqués de Beniel

It is the most important civil building in the city because of it grandeur and beauty.
It was completed in 1609, a sober brick and stone mannerist styled building with an outstanding façade and a marble entrance with shields of Molina Medrano family. Inside, its rooms lead from a central courtyard with marble columns, from which rises a beautiful coffered imperial staircase.
It was built by Alonso Molina and Medrano but he never lived in it. Since he had no direct descendants, it was inherited by his nephew, the Murcia Marquis of Beniel, who always used it as the General Captains and Coast of Granada Regiment residence.
Today is the headquarters of Velez Malaga Town hall Culture Delegation and María Zambrano Foundation
