Durango's Town Hall

Durango's Town Hall was built in the 16th century, but had to be restored as a result of the damages suffered in the 1937 bombings. 

 

It is Classical in style and shows Napolitan influences. The building has a square plan and it is divided into two floors and an attic. The portico is built in cut stone masonry, whereas the rest of the building was constructed in brickwork.

 

The building's most interesting elements are located in the main façade. The ground floor has a marvellous portal with seven round arches. There is a large balcony on the first floor with seven openings-doors. The balcony's central door is outstanding, framed by pilasters and supporting a triangular pediment where the village's coat of arms is placed. The attic has seven windows.

 

Inside the building, the paintings decorating the two upper floors are worth admiring. They represent imaginary architectures, llove affairs, hunting scenes... They are copies of the original Rococo paintings by Ignacio de Zumárraga.
