The Palace del Dean Ortega was constructed by Francisco Ortega y Salido, who was the Dean of the Cathedral of Malaga and chaplain of the Holy Chapel of El Salvador. Unfortunately Ortega died before the building was completed. The building was constructed in the middle of the 16th century and the architect was Andres de Vandelvira. The building has a rectangular ground plan with a big central Renaissance patio that has graceful columns. The main door has Doric columns with a lintel and is crowned with the angels that carry the coat of arms of the founder. There are windows in the ground floor of the facade with triangular pediments over them. The windows on the second floor have curved pediments over them. The facade has a very symmetrical look that adds to its beauty. The patio has a mannerist style. The building has been a parador since 1930, with the name of Condestable Davalos Parador Nacional.
