Mirabel Palace-Farmhouse

Located about 5 kilometers southwest of Guadalupe, in the province of Cáceres, the Mirabel Palace-Farm is an outstanding example of historical and cultural architecture in Spain. Surrounded by the valleys of Valdegracia and Infierno, and nestled in the foothills of the Villuercas mountain range, this palace was originally a small convent that was transformed over time into an elegant mansion. The 14th century building was donated to the Friars of Guadalupe in the 15th century and became the resting place of the Catholic Monarchs and their children. With the deposition of Mendizábal in 1836, it passed into private hands and is now privately owned, although it retains its historical and artistic charm.

The palace, declared a Historic-Artistic Monument in 1931, is known for its architectural and artistic elements of great value. Its main enclosure is walled and has Moorish gardens and several fountains, among which the “Fountain of the Cold” stands out. The chapel of Magdalena, built in the 15th century, stands out for its Flemish frescoes depicting biblical scenes and its polychrome coffered ceiling. In addition, the Chapel of Christ of Mirabel houses a Baroque altarpiece with a canvas by Rubens and the venerated image of the reclining Christ. The palace also has Mudejar and Gothic influences, mixed with Baroque elements, giving it a rich stylistic diversity. Every year on the 3rd of May, on the occasion of the Pilgrimage of the Christ of Mirabel, the palace opens its doors to the public, allowing visitors to enjoy its artistic treasures and the natural environment of the Villuercas-Ibores-Jara UNESCO World Geopark.
