At number 18 Maestra street there lies a noble 15th century building which is currently used as the Municipal Palace of Culture, right opposite the tourist information office. It is the Miguel Luca de Iranzo palace, a constable of Castile at the time of Enrique IV whom quite a few scholars have labelled as having convert origins, amongst other reasons owing to his habit of not doing any work on Saturdays and the fact he was murdered by a group of old Christians at the cathedral in March 1473. The splendid coffered ceiling of the Mudejar room of the Constable´s palace bears testimony to the numerous meetings that Don Miguel would hold with the most distinguished people in the court, some of them recognised converts, sacked and even murdered by his enemies after his death.
