Residence of Don Iñigo de Mendoza, Marquis of Almenara and Viceroy of Aragón. Its facade reflects two periods: the 16th century and the rest the 17th century, all in rubble and there is a window in the French Gothic style on the left. With several names: Palacio del Principe, ancestral home of the Águila family or of the marquis of Altares.

There is an important surround that covers the balcony with a lion and an eagle. Inside there is a quadrangular 17th-century courtyard with a double gallery on three sides; there are raised arcades on Gothic columns. At each of the bases on the lower floor there are shields and medallions alluding to the family; above the ornamentation is in the Plateresque style.
