Next to the Sacred Chapel of the Saviour, you will find other of the most emblematic buildings of the Vázquez de Molina Square: the Palace of the Dean Ortega. Besides of visiting it, you will also eat and stay in it because it is the National Tourism Parador since 1930 (a state-run hotel).

It was ordered to be built about the middle of the XVI century by Fernando Ortega, first main priest of the Sacred Chapel of the Saviour, who never lived in it since he died before the end of the jobs. The design of the building was made by the Renaissance architect Andrés de Vandelvira and Luis de la Vega.

The façade was conceived horizontally with two floors and delimited by a pronounced plinth. We can distinguish the stone staircase of the main entrance, this entrance is framed by Doric columns on pedestals where two angels hold the coat of arms of Ángel Ezequiel Fernández de Liencres y Pando de Casteñada, owners of the palace since 1831 to 1929. You may also observe the large furrows of the rings used to tie de horses and the corner balconies, traditional for the Renaissance architecture.

Like other palaces that you could have seen in the city, it is characterized by the central square courtyard which distributes all the building. The two floors rise with an arch gallery held up by marble columns.

The Palace of the Dean Ortega, as other monuments placed on the Vázquez de Molina Square, is also an Asset of Cultural Interest and it is part of the World Heritage Site.
