The house of los Hoces

The house of los Hoces, also called the house of the Guzmanes, is an old manor house located in the neighborhood of La Trinidad de Córdoba (Spain) .1 The plot was donated by King Fernando III to the family of Hoces, whose Coat of arms is on the front of the house. This old house is currently used as a municipal archive.1 Previously it also housed the municipal library, until its transfer to the Central Library in the Ronda del Marrubial.


Its distribution corresponds to the scheme of Andalusian house, organizing the stays around two patios portificados. In the second of these patios there are three openings with mimed windows of Mudejar style, with lobed and angreled arches alternating stone and brick. Dated in the 15th century, they are decorated with dry-rope tiles from the 16th century.

The Mudejar coffered ceilings stand out in the gallery that connects the two courtyards. At the end of the 20th century or the beginning of the 21st century, a restoration was carried out that recovered the beautiful polychrome that decorates them.
