16-17th Century houses

Façades began to follow the model of opening windows and balconies overlooking the streets. Main balconies gradually gained in importance and complexity.

Casas del XVI y XVII In the 16th century buildings began to be opened onto the street. Until then, lights were non-existent and windows faced inwards like in the Casa del Rey Moro, a Mudejar house dating from the 15th century. Façades began to follow the model which became widespread in the 17th century of opening windows and balconies overlooking the streets. Main balconies gradually gained in importance and complexity, a process which culminated in the Palacio Arzobispal or San Telmo. The change started in the 16th century and as Pedro Mexía described it: "everyone is building towards the street. In the last ten years more windows and railings have been opened than in the previous thirty years". Early examples include the Palace of Las Dueñas of the Duke of Alba, the Casa de Pilatos and the Palace of the Marquis of Algaba.
