INFORMATION

The house of Guevara, also known as La Casa de las Columnas (the house of Columns), is the most important Civil Baroque building in the town. Ordered by M. Juan de Guevara, it was built between 1691 and 1705.

The façade consists in two sections. The lower one has Solomonic columns, countless decorations with plant motifs, fruits and satyrs. The second section presents the heraldic representation of the family and, at the top, the coat of arms of the Order of Santiago.

The patio is formed by arches standing on marble columns decorated with plant motifs, little heads of children, coats and trompe-l¿oeils.

It was restored in 1996, once its last owner, a female descendant of the Guevara family, transferred it to Lorca Town hall, since she wanted it to be a museum. At the moment and because of the earthquake which hit Lorca last 11th May 2011, the building will have to be restored because of the damages suffered.
