Palace-Church of Goyeneche

PALACE-CHURCH OF GOYENECHE

Impressive Historic-Artistic Site erected by José Benito de Churriguera, at the request of the politician and businessman Juan de Goyeneche as the axis of the factory environment created in Nuevo Baztán.

The palace and residence of Goyeneche forms a facade with the Church, forming the central nucleus of this monumental town.

Built with berroqueña limestone, it is characterized by its harmony, simplicity and austerity. It has two heights and at its right end stands a tower reminiscent of Herrera topped by a stone balustrade and balls, in tribute to Juan de Herrera and his style escurialense. 

The Church of San Francisco Javier is presided over by an image of the saint and the façade is full of the classicist baroque that characterizes the whole.
