Oxirando Palace and Tower

The Oxirando complex comprises the palace and the tower, and has been declared as a Monument in Bizkaia. The tower of late Gothic-style (late 15th century) has a square base and is divided in three storeys. 

The main entrance is under a round arch. The first floor was devoted to daily life activities and has special medieval windows. The last storey used to be a wide, more illuminated lounge. In the main facade we can see the coat of arms of the Palacio family. On the other hand, the Renaissance-style (16th century) palace is terraced, linked to the tower in its western part. Both have the same height and are built with masonry. 

The entrance is a great masterpiece but the most relevant is is the 'loggia' located in the last storey, a decorated cornice separates it from the storey below, and a balcony over which there are Tuscan columns united by archs.
