Construction started in 1794, but the current aesthetics were adopted in 1925, some years before the 1929 Ibero-American Exposition held in Seville. These transformations acquired the Andalusian regionalism style, influenced by architect Aníbal Gozález’s work.
A fountain was erected in a desolate area on the outskirts of the town. It was called the Fuente de los Leones, following its remodelling during the times of Juana I. This fountain, surrounded by a stone, bench-like ledge, became a place for recreation and prompted the construction of a boulevard in the surrounding area some years later.
The fountain was known as the “Plaza de Abajo” (the lower square), because the “Plaza de Arriba” (upper square) was found within the walled enclosure, the higher part of the city.
