Tourism in Murcia
Casa Cerdá is one of the most emblematic buildings in the urban landscape
His figure presides over the entrance to the Plaza de Santo Domingo from the Gran Vía Alfonso X the Wise, the ideal place to begin a tour of the city's historic quarter.
The magnificent workmanship of the building and the colourful effect of its façade make it the most outstanding building in the Plaza de Santo Domingo
This building, designed by the architect José Antonio Rodríguez Martínez, dates from the first half of the 20th century. Eclectic in style, it is notable for the tall Ionic columns on its façade and the circular pavilion that crowns the entire building. Its reddish, green and white finish accentuates the singular character of this building, making it a landmark and point of reference in the square in which it is located.
José Antonio Rodríguez had a great deal of experience and fame at that time, in fact he was a municipal architect and among his best known works in Murcia were the Casa Díaz-Cassou, the Casa de los Nueve Pisos, the Convalecencia, the La Alegría de la Huerta building, the Edificio Flomar, the Casa Guillamón and the Sociedad de Cazadores. His popularity meant that he was chosen to carry out the work on the Casa Cerdá, which took place between 1934 and 1936, being in fact his last great architectural work.
The building is listed as a Cultural Heritage Site
The building was constructed between 1934 and 1936, and its function was purely residential.
It is a large building, consisting of six storeys plus a ground floor. The façade is divided into three different sections by the arrangement of balustrades that define horizontal lines separating them.
