Town Hall

Town Hall

Around the Plaza de Ramón y Cajal, Villarrobledo offers a fascinating historical and artistic heritage, which reaches its maximum expression in his square. Declared a Historic-Artistic Site, two of the most emblematic buildings are located in the square: the St. Blaise’s Church and the Town Hall, which have been declared a Site of Cultural Interest in the Monument category since 1970.
Inside the building stands out the Cloister, a solid stone construction recently restored after the restoration of the building and which corresponds to an earlier construction of the 14th and 15th centuries used as the Town’s Granary and Court.

The execution, by the renowned architect José María Pérez “Peridis”, has achieved a perfect balance between functionality and tradition. The facade that opens to the square has an impressive Renaissance arcade off 1559, which represents one of the most outstanding works of 16th-century architecture in La Mancha. It is composed of a double colonnade with six openings each corresponding to the Doric order on the ground floor and the Ionic order on the upper floor, all framed by two walls, the one on the left-hand side is angled with unique characteristics. The façade is crowned at the top by a series of so-called Herrerian pyramids.

The ensemble is finished with different examples of local heraldry, including a unique coat of arms of the town in relief, located on the left-hand wall.; on its right, on the stone oval, we can see an inscription commemorating the town’s loyalty to King Don Fernando; and, on the right-hand wall, we appreciate an impressive Coat of Arms of the Habsburgs located under a sundial, of excellent technical execution.
