In the past, houses of this kind were frequent along the eastern border of the ancient town, located near the ravine or gorge of the river Huécar.
Today, however, there are only a few of them remaining. Of all of these structures, the most well-known is a group of three with wooden balconies.
Their origin remains uncertain, though there is proof of their existence in the 15th century. Throughout their history they have been refurbished several times. The most recent took place during the 1920s.
They are best viewed from the Parador on the opposite side of the cliff & accessed by an old wooden slat bridge.
The pueblo viejo town is beautiful to look around especially at sunset.
