This majestic property located in the western coast of Cantabria, 50km from Santander, is a magnificent example of the civil architecture sponsored with money from the West Indies in the 18th century.
Generally, all the elements belong to the Baroque architecture typical of this region: main home with three floors, arches and entrance hall on the ground floor, and solarium on the two upper floors.
Adjoined to the main façade there is a squared plan tower with three floors and covered with a four-slope roof; the top floor offers excellent views over the valley and the nearby village. At a 90-degree angle with the manor house, a unique rectangular chapel was built and it preserves the colourful vaults with polychrome ribs. The main door with a semi-circular arch is topped with a pediment showing the family coat of arms. The chapel is connected to the house through the tower.
The interior of this large manor house was renovated in the 60s, respecting the original structure and layout; it retains the hand cut oak wood floors, the polychrome friezes in the reception rooms and the other decorative elements from the construction period. It has different rooms among which it is worth highlighting the large rectangular reception room, the library, office, dining room, breakfast area, seven bedrooms and four bathrooms. On the ground floor, there are two service rooms with bathroom, forming a small apartment. There is another office on the ground floor of the tower.
Next to the main home, there is a house for housekeepers, a typical corncrib and other building for the service of the main building.
The 9Ha garden includes large prairies and the area around the constructions has some ancient ornamental trees lining up the access road and the entire architectural set.
This set, declared property of cultural interest, is in need of renovation.
The property is located in Valdáliga, an area full of palaces, churches and towers with history. Very close to tourist towns such as San Vicente de la Barquera, Comillas, Cabezón de la Sal and the Cabuérniga Valley. A large part of the municipality includes the natural Park of Oyambre, with unique landscapes, moderate climate and a variety of natural resources.
