Since its creation, the Casa Pestagua was designed as an aristocrat’s palace, and to communicate an impressive majesty. For this reason, the mansion was built according to the purest Moorish palace style, an influence that continued to be important in 16th and 17th Century Spanish and colonial architecture.
A refreshing and majestic hall leads to the patio, around which the mansion is situated. This particularly extensive patio, with its 8 palm trees and water fountain, shows the importance of its construction as it leads to the backyard which offers guests the pleasure of modern comforts with its pool and solarium.
The echoes of the Republican era are visible in the mansion’s decoration, as can be seen in its meticulously restored statues and frescos.
After some years of neglect, Casa Pestagua was acquired by the famed constructor Pedro Gómez, who entrusted the restoration of this gem of colonial architecture to the architect Álvaro Barrera, and so brought the mansion back to its original splendor.
