Villa Mercedes

Located on the Paseo de Larios in Torre del Mar, this is the only house from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that remains in this area. In the not-so-distant past, the Paseo de Larios walk had numerous houses of this type. This building, with a regionalist and neo-Mudejar style, is made up of different levels, with a tower on the left in the style of sixteenth-century turrets and a penthouse/attic.

Villa Mercedes, Torre del Mar

At the front there is a porch that is supported by two Tuscan columns with sculpted crests, with a frieze made of stucco running along the outside and containing designs with embossed plant motifs. The facade has a main balcony with large windows and wrought iron grilles. The tower rises three stories in height, having its last section with a twin vein.

It is a very nice building and is a prime example of the type of second home generally owned by wealthy entrepreneurs from the industrial development era of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
