Baroque palace. The main portal has two coats of arms. This building has had many names over the years, but it is most commonly known as the Casa de la Mayordomía Ducal, having been the home of the administrator of the Duke of Medinaceli in the town, Puente de Don Gonzalo. During recent decades it has been known by the Vergara family name, as that family now own it.

The Palace-house was built in the last third of the 18th century, although works were still being carried out on it at the start of the 19th century. It has a wide stone portal -the best in the town. The building has three floors; the central balcony is impressive, as are the large enclosed outward-jutting balconies found at either side. Two identical coats of arms decorate the façade; decorative elements are elaborated in stone, coming from the nearby quarries of Sierra Gorda. They are possibly the work of local stone masons the Gallardo brothers, who were active during this time and were documented as being involved in the construction of the La Concepción Sanctuary.

The house maintains a beautiful patio with columns, staircase and several lounge areas boasting furniture of that era. It has an interesting garden, the part that always dominated these country mansion estates, with a separate entrance for horse and carts from calle de Godínez.
