Old Town Hall

The Old Town Hall is located in the Asunción Square, next to San Dionisio Church in the locality of Jerez de la Frontera, was built in 1575, during the rein of Felipe II, by the prestigious Old Masters of the city Andrés Ribera, Diego Martín de Oliva and Bartolomé Sanchéz.

Decorative elements are seen to be distributed in two mains areas upon a spectacular Renaissance façade, rich in icons and recognised as one of the best local examples of the Renaissance period.

Standing out from the harmonious whole and framing the main entrance to the Town Hall stand the two figures of Julius Caesar and Hercules, flanked by the cardinal virtues in reference to the merits which should characterize the counsellors within.
