Antiguas Carnicerías

Antiguas Carnicerías

Originally located outside the walls, past Puerta de Jaén, the butcher shop was relocated in the 1960s by the General Directorate of Fine Arts to its new location to finish configuring the square. The building could not be rebuilt maintaining the same configuration, since the available area in the square was less than its original location, therefore the solution was to “fold” the ends and reincorporate them on the sides. It consists of two differentiated bodies separated by an entablature decorated with rosettes; the upper one is a sun terrace with the emperor’s coat of arms. The butcher shop consisted of the slaughterhouse on the ground floor and sales area on the upper floor. Following a recent restoration, it is now the seat of the courts..


Located in Plaza de los Leones.
