This building from the 18th century, popularly called “Casa de los Leones” (House Of The Lions) named like this because of the reliefs of this animal which are found on the pilasters that frame the façade, is one of the most characteristic of the civil architecture of the Baroque Cadiz examples.

It is also known as “the House of the Placilla” because of where it is located, a typically shopping area next to the Plaza de Abastos or market.
