Casa Horno de Oro

La Casa Horno de Oro is located on the Axares neighborhood - of the Health or of the Delight -, called like that in the Moslem epoch by the good climatic conditions and the beauty of the houses.

Built at the end of XV century, the transformations of the XVI century made of her an interesting example of Muslim house which incorporate Islamic and Castilian elements. The simplicity of her main entrance, which corresponds to the intimate character of her inhabitants, doesn’t permit to imagine the architectonic harmony that concealed inside.

A rectangular courtyard with a reservoir centers the building, establishing the rooms on the shorter sides. The typical nasrid arcades of the courtyard argue an arcaded gallery made in the Christian epoch. At the entrance of the south hall of high floor survives the original arch of plasterwork and the tacas on the jambs, as well as the splendid frame of polychrome.
