Salazar Rosso Palace - Archaeological Museum 16th - 17th Century, Renaissance style.

This mansion was built by the Salazar - Rosso families, Genoese traders who had settled in the town. The simple facade boasts a splendid carved stone entrance with intricate design demonstrating Italian influence. This design includes the coat of arms flanked by two sphinxes each bearing the head of a bearded man, the bust of a woman and the lower limbs of a lion.

Throughout history this building has been associated with the illustrious names of its successive owners, such as the Marquis of Esquilache or the Moreno Rocafull family. Today it houses the Municipal Archaeological Museum, a visit to which takes us on an interesting journey through the diverse human occupation of Lorca since pre-historic times.
