Fodor's Expert Review Casa de Castril
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
Bernardo Zafra, secretary to Queen Isabella, once owned this richly decorated 16th-century palace. Notice the exquisite portal and the facade carvings depicting scallop shells and a phoenix. Inside is the Museo Arqueológico (Archaeological Museum), where you can find artifacts from provincial caves and from Moorish times, Phoenician burial urns from the coastal town of Almuñécar, and a copy of the Dama de Baza (Lady of Baza), a large Iberian sculpture discovered in northern Granada Province in 1971 (the original is in Madrid). Extensive restoration of the museum was completed in mid-2018.
