entrance and façade
Casa Lercaro, formerly known as Casa Ponte Fonte, is one of the architectural and historical jewels in the crown of La Orotava, with a number of Baroque features and design influences that can be traced back to the Genoa region.
The mansion’s façade stands out for its symmetrical inset windows, which are surrounded by sgraffito designs and other Italianate touches, incorporating classic plant motifs.
The central balcony is made of wrought iron, with a coffered wooden base and Baroque adornments.
Beneath the commanding upper balcony there is a marble shield, which was made in Genoa and bears the coat of arms of the Ponte, Lugo, Fonte and Grimaldi families, who built this palatial mansion.
This palatial mansion boasts two courtyards. The central, U-shaped courtyard has been renovated with exceptional taste, maintaining the structure of the original space formed by columns with Corinthian-style capitals.
The lower courtyard houses a water mill: a fascinating artefact that dates back to when this area was first settled in the 16th century. It was the last water mill to be installed along the canal that channelled water down from the natural springs of La Orotava.
The presence of tropical plants and flora native to the Canary Islands transforms the courtyard into a splendid botanical garden, and adds a touch of magic to the events that take place at the Casa.
