Council

This is an official buidling constructed in the XIX Century, when Javier de Burgos established a new national administrative division, creating the provinces.

Toledo again became the capital, although on a local scale. It was erected on the site of an old convent convent for monks of la Merced that was destoyed during the French invasion. The current building is of a rectangular base, and is structured around a large central staircase and two symmetrical side patios.

The main facade has an enormous entrance of three sections; the first made up of three round arches composed of dressed cut stones; the second a row of balconies divided into three parts by large columns; and the third a front bearing the shield of Spain which is finished with a fascia. The back part of the building looks out over the "Mirador de la Granja", the best vantage point over the new area of the city.
