Casa de las Cadenas (Archivo Histórico Provincial)
The Casa de las Cadenas (House of Chains) is currently the headquarters of the Provincial Historical Archives.
The origin of its construction lies in a curious story that occurred during the procession of Corpus in 1692. A strong storm forced the guardians to shelter in this house. After this episode, its owner, Manuel Barrios, decided to build a new, more majestic building.
The facade retains a monumental baroque front of Genoese marble. A white marble balustrade signed by Ponsonelli completes the set, to whom the execution of the portal is also attributed.
