Pedro López de Ayala was given the title Count of Fuensalida in the mid-15th century by Juan II of Castile. Then the king’s successor, Henry IV of Castile (also called Enrique IV), bestowed upon the Castilian noblemen this palace in 1470. The count’s shield can still be seen on the Mudéjar and Gothic structure. In 1539, the Empress Isabel of Portugal died here during childbirth. She was the wife of Charles I of the Spanish Empire who was also Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor. The historic building now is the offices for the President of Castilla-La Mancha Community Council.
