Torre Saura Palace

CASA DEL COMTE DE TORRE-SAURA 1839, Ildefonso Hernández The most impressive of the palaces of Ciutadella, as much by its dimensions - it occupies three quarters of the block - like by its conception - is the most refined example of the civil neoclassic architecture. Occupying a privileged position in the Plaza del Born, in the mid-nineteenth century the old side facade of the original palace towards the Town Hall to align with the Salort Palace, just finished at that time, and the construction of A new wing that would give an updated image to the old structure. On the façade, the large arched doorway is not the entrance to the palace but is intended for carriage access. It is on the side located on Major Street where the main door is located, facing the one of the neighboring palace, which connects with the staircase that leads to the rooms on the first floor. The succession of noble spaces takes us to the corner gallery that is a replica of the Salort Palace. The spaciousness of the plot made it possible to build an interior space for parking spaces and stables for horses, which, with some additions, has maintained its high environmental quality.
