Aracena – Arias Montano Casino

The Arias Montano Casino is located at the Plaza Marqués de Aracena (Square).

The building of the Arias Montano Casino is one of the best exponents of modernist architecture in Andalusia.

Within the prolific work of the architect Aníbal González in Aracena, this construction moves a way from his taste for neomudejar, giving way to a harmonious and high visual impact building inspired by Austrian modernism.

The Casino was inaugurated in 1910 and presents a symmetrical distribution on its two facades, tooped with a semi-cylindrical volume that joins both frnts. In its origins, the building was crowned by an oval dome that was replaced years later by its current roof of great slope and with Arabic tiles.

Aníbal González took full advantage of the scenary he occupies, just in front of the Plaza Marqués de Aracena, for which he equipped the main rooms with large windows and used classic elements in his decoration.

Of its interior highlights the main hall and the games, influenced by the English clubs of the nineteenth century. The Arias Montano Casino has been included in the Andalusian Register of Contemporary Architecture of de Andalusian Institute of Historical Heritage (IAPH).
