Historic Buildings

 

.

This is a very refined although not palatial house, whose 18th century baroque facade has stone gargoyles in the form of dogs, outstanding wrought iron grille work and spacious entrance way.

The interior is formed around splendid inner courtyard by arches topped by baroque styled cornice with human and animal shaped gargoyles and masks in high relief.

In the center of the courtyard, there is a fountain supported by winged sphinxes.

There are reproduction of this fountain on some of the city's streets.

In the one of the corners of the house, there is small room "for repentance".

The building is now used as kindergarten.
