Long Description:
It consists of two very different facades: the north, located on Calle de La Muralla. The south, in the Plaza de Camposagrado, is very attractive and architecturally elegant.

The north façade of the palace, parallel to the old wall, consists of two floors, the first consisting of a beautiful gallery of arches that constituted another element of vigilance towards what came from threatening by the sea (at that time pirates in search of loot ); the set refers to Renaissance architecture.

The second floor consists of balconies that correspond to the arches and lower hollows, lintelled, flanked by lateral shields that kill the edges of the corners. The southern part, attributed to the Menéndez Camina brothers, Avilés architects, presents a magnificent construction. It consists of two symmetrical side towers, both emblazoned, and a rectangular central body, where the monumental shield of the inhabitant (Bernaldo de Quirós, Marquis of Camposagrado) stands out. Taking the coat of arms as a reference, different columns can be seen in the central balconies that change style as one descends towards the ground floor. All this gives it the appearance of an altarpiece, which constitutes another extremely unique element of the palace. Equally noteworthy are the abundant decorative elements on this façade.
