Spanish name: Casa Pintada. Museo Cristobal Gabarrón

Casa Pintada. Museo Cristobal Gabarrón Palatial house built in 1770 by order of Mister Diego de Blaya Molina Piñero Valcárcel, whose family coats of arms decorate the balconies and staircase. This house has a square floor, three stories, wine cellar and a central tower, typical architectural features of the Spanish Mediterranean coast.
 
The most beautiful part of the building is its facade, with four balconies decorated with coats of arms of each family, polychrome cornices, front side made with red marble from Cehegín and a hunting scene. As for the inside, the impressive staircase with paintings and stone-made ornaments, as well as the large first-floor saloon with mural painting in blue and gray colors, are the most distinctive pieces.
 
As the family began losing power, the house was used for other things: a school, a butane dispatch center, a training academy, etc., losing its splendor and grandeur until the Mula Town Hall bought it in 1986 to turn it into the Cristóbal Gabarrón Museum and Interpretation Center.
