Casa de la Primicia Review

To the north of the ornate castle and hotel El Collado is the monument to the famous Laguardia composer of fables, Felix María Samaniego (1745–1801), heir to the tradition of Aesop and Jean de La Fontaine. Walk around the small, grassy park to the Puerta de Páganos and look right—you can see Laguardia's oldest civil structure, the 15th-century Casa de la Primicia, where tithes of fresh fruit were collected in medieval times. Recently restored, it now houses a bodega.
