Palace of Pronillo
The Palace of Pronillo belonged to the Riva-Herrera family and is located in the Garden-city. It is one of those stately and historical buildings that can be found in the city, though almost nothing is conserved. Part of the walled fence and battlement surrounding the tower-house and its main door with a coat of arms can still be observed. The house keeps only part of the walls and the chapel with its lancet vault. This monument was built in the 16th century and the tower had three floors with angular cylindrical sentry boxes. The Riva-Herrera family was important not only in Cantabria but also in the early American history.
