Email: turismo@aytolucena.es
Considered one of the best examples of civil architecture of the eighteenth century in our city, its construction was promoted by the Mora-Saavedra family, between the years 1730 and 1750. This family of possible Jewish-convert origin would be part of the families that were settled in Lucena, attracted by the fame that the city had in past times and the longing to dwell in the land of their ancestors. In its architecture stand out, in addition to its magnificent facade, its two patios, the second of them arcaded, and its beautiful staircase, crowned with a vault, attributed by its style to two of the last masters from Lucena, Francisco José Guerrero and Pedro de Mena Gutiérrez. The palace houses the Interpretation Center of the City of Lucena and the Municipal Office of Tourist Information with a series of thematic and exhibition rooms, as well as a sculpture of Eros from Roman times, found during the works carried out for the rehabilitation of the building. * Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday and holidays, from 10:30 to 14:00 / 17.00 to 20.00. Sundays, from 10:30 to 14:00, closed Monday. Free entrance. * Confirm closing time (Friday and Saturday) through the phone. 957 509990, subject to modification for cultural activity celebration "Tu Historia" (Your History).
