Aracena – Santa Catalina Town Hall

Santa Catalina Town Hall is located in the Plaza Marquesa de Aracena (Square), a few minutes from Ntra. Sra. de la Asunción Parish Church and from the The Old Chapter House.

The building that today houses the Town Hall was built in 1911 by the Sánchez – Dalp family who donated it to the town of Aracena.

It is one of the most singular works of the architect Aníbal González in Aracena. The City Hall building was built simutaneously to the Casino de Arias Montano, although its shpe and appearence are totally different. This construction is neomudéjar style, but very different from those made to date by the Sevillian architect.

It is a triangular-shaped building whose main attraction lies in its exterior, where the red brick is blended with the white clay of the local limestone. This chromatic fusion of different shapes and decoration along the façade gives it its own personality and differentiating it from the other buildings in the urban area.

Throughout the past century it was used as a Consistory, Court, school, High School Institute or telegraph office. After an intense restoration, in 201 it became the municipal administrative headquarters.
