Ceuta has an immense architectural heritage in which numerous buildings of great cultural value stand out, known by the local population and admired by tourists visiting the territory.

The city has a distinctive built ensemble that reflects the historical peculiarities of the different eras and cultures that have passed through it.

House of Dragons

A three-story historicist building built by the Cerni González brothers at the end of the 19th century, following the plans of Cortina Pérez. Work began in 1897 and the building soon received the nickname Casa de los Dragones (House of the Dragons) because of the large figures that crowned its façade.

During the Second Republic the dragons were removed and after the restoration of the façade, replicas of the original figures were placed.
