Casa de La Tercia

Casa de La Tercia

Las Tercias was once the grain store and the testamentary foundation of Don Gómez Manrique, Knight of the Renaissance. It was built in the second half of the sixteenth century and has more modern private houses attached to one side. It communicates underground with the castle through a passage excavated in the 1960s by the master builder Antonio Cantero. The presence of Miguel de Cervantes in Lopera is confirmed in several documents from the time when he was Commissioner for the collection of grain for the galleys. Thus, it is known that Cervantes was in Lopera at least between February 22 and 25, 1592, when he collected 200 bushels of wheat and 60 bushels of barley for the Invincible Armada. Las Tercias has also been a cellar for local wines for decades, due to its optimal temperature for storage. At present, the upper part is dedicated to various cultural events, as well as housing the Pedro Monje Museum. The lower part is also equipped to hold different events. Both have been recently restored. Located in Plaza del Triunfo.
