Palace of Toral de los Guzmanes
The building is made of masonry, it has a square ground plan with turrets in the angles and is surrounded by a moat. An important coat of arms (that of the Guzmanes) stands above one of the access gates.
It was built in the 14th century by Juan Ramírez de Guzmán, the mayor of León. The first documents mentioning the castle date from 1393 and the coats of arms standing above the gate were sculpted by Pedro Núñez de Guzmán and his wife Elvira de Bazán. Now, the castle houses the Museo del Botijo (Drinking Jug museum).
