It was also the birthplace of Don Sancho Dávila y Daza, Commandant in chief of the Spanish Army and the Lieutenant of the Grand Duke of Alba, Don Fernando Alvaréz de Toledo, during the battles of Flanders and Portugal.
The House is surrounded by a large garden and park with magnificent oaks, many of which are several centuries old. Inside the house there are many paintings and ornamental elements which have been kept over generations to the present time.
