The country house built by one of the key figures of Felipe II’s kingdom, the General Inquisitor and Primate Archbishop Gaspar de Quiroga, at the outskirts of Toledo, is certainly one of the less known Renaissance monuments of Spain's national heritage. This work aims to re-construct this sixteenth century building’s history by analysing the architectural remains and the fragments of mural paintings that have survived until present times, by the study of the close relation between the cigarral and his owner, a relation that shows up patently clear in several aspects of its construction and decoration.
