16th and 17th-century rectangular baroque palace with two storeys. The front is made of ashlar and has a hipped roof with pinnacles. It is also called the Palacio de los Condestables.

The chapel of Santiago is attached to the palace. It has a Romanesque entrance and an image of the Apostle dressed as a pilgrim in a niche over a round arch between pilasters. Everything is fenced in by a double enclosure; the first one with embrasures, bevels and emblazoned windows and the second one with railings and pyramidal tips. The coat of arms of the Velasco family is situated on a Cruz de Santiago.
