The Casa de Alba or Palacio de Dueñas, located in the neighborhood of La Feria and built between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, is the former residence of the Duchess of Alba. Its architecture is splendid and is influenced by Gothic-Mudejar and Renaissance styles. Its name comes from the neighboring Cistercian monastery that preceded it: the monastery of Santa María de las Dueñas. Its origin is ancient and it has a strong link with famous names in the history of Spain, such as the Casa Alba or the Pineda family.
In fact, the first buildings of what later became the Palacio de las Dueñas were built by Juan de Pineda and later expanded by his son Pedro de Pineda. A plaque on the façade reminds us that the great writer and poet Antonio Machado was born here in 1875 and spent the first years of his life here.
