Torre de los Toledo-Moctezuma, centro historico Cáceres,Spain

The Toledo-Moctezuma Palace is a Renaissance style medieval building located in the monumental city of Cáceres.

It was built in the fifteenth century but its present appearance is due to the reforms that were undertaken in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth

It was owned by the family of Toledo whose crest as well as the families of Carvajal and Ulloa, also originally owned the building, can be seen in its facade.

At the end of the sixteenth century, after the union in marriage of Mariana de Carvajal and John of Toledo Toledo Moctezuma descendant of Juan Cano de Saavedra and Isabel de Moctezuma, daughter of the Aztec emperor Moctezuma II, reforms are undertaken on top household who provided this to the characteristic exterior brick open gallery in which surface again included the heraldic shields of the families of Toledo and Carvajal, the addition of Moctezuma.

Today, after the work undertaken by the Ministry of Culture in the late twentieth century, it houses the offices of the Provincial Historic Archive.
