Patio Embajador Vich: jewel of the Renaisance
Embajador Vich is located in the San Pío V Fine Arts Museum. This is one of the three best examples of a Renaissance patio in Spain, and dates back to the first half of the period. It was commissioned by Jerónimo Vich (1459-1535), ambassador to Fernando the Catholic and Carlos V in Rome. The original piece was demolished in the 19th century to build homes, but has been reconstructed in the Fine Arts Museum. The colonnade in the lower gallery, its arches, and the Palladian and Rose windows in the spandrels are just some of its most fascinating elements.
