  • Place of peace and harmony, sober and with character, like everything that has to do with Castilian lands.

  • This square essentially castellana which can be accessed by car, preserves the essence of imperial Spain, reflected in his Ducal Palace (today Parador de Turismo) and houses that the close, typically Castilian. A delight lost by its surroundings and enjoy the rural peace.

  • The Palace is located in the high part of Lerma and its four towers are visible when you reach the village. He presides over the main square, open to car traffic, and is the reference of the constructive work made by the Duke of Lerma in this town at the beginning of the 17TH century. From the Palace to the Collegiate Church of San Pedro, there is a succession of monasteries from that time, the arcade of access to the collegiate church to the ducal family and the tomb of the famous cure Merino, guerrilla fighter in the war of 1808 against Napoleon. The convents mentioned above, it is remarkable that the Poor Clares is still active, and sweets made by them that are for sale to the public delicious. On the Palace called the attention that have four towers, that is a detail unusual in palaces nobility of that time, since them four towers were a privilege of the palaces of the King. Reminds in his appearance outside to the Escorial, since responds to the same style architectural, though the of Lerma is much more small that the ordered build by Felipe II. Even so, its exterior contemplation is very interesting and not to be missed if you visit Lerma.
