The Palacete Huerto Ruano is located on the main street of Lorca, Juan Carlos I Avenue. It was the home of Raimundo Ruano, but he soon abandoned it and it was used for different uses.
Currently it is municipal property and is used as multipurpose, to host exhibitions, presentations or any other event that takes place in the city.
Raimundo Ruano, its owner, was one of the most active industrialists of that time and the fact of spending part of his life in Edinburgh caused the new artistic trends in Europe to be reflected in his home.
The main facade, flanked by two towers, its decoration, as well as the existence of a garden with a fountain, were a novelty and an example to follow within the local eclectic architecture. Currently this building is used for art and painting exhibitions and other cultural activities.
The interior of the building is spectacular and the exterior is decorated with beautiful gardens, water fountains and sculptures.
