<b>Episcopal Palace Murcia City places of interest Murcia</b>

Details

In Cardenal Belluga square, the Episcopal Palace rises up next to the majestic front of the cathedral.  It is said that Bishop Mateo decided that he wanted a residence from which he could contemplate the newly finished facade of the cathedral.

With very particular architectural elements, it is another of the high points of the 18th century in Murcia.  Several expert stone masons from other cathedrals collaborated in its construction.

It is made up of two joined buildings:

The so named Martillo (hammer) of the palace (the bishop's viewpoint): a part of the building which towers above the rest.

The main body or palace, clearly influenced by recent Italian Manierism, it is
therefore related to Roman palaces of the time.

The balcony doors of the facade have their origin in those conceived by Michelangelo for the
Farnese Palace, Rome, in 1546.
