The legend states that its owners, rich members of the bourgeoisie, hadn’t children and the husband, on his return from a large trip, brought a monkey with him. The animal was given its own room, toys and all kinds of pampering.
Later, during one of the trader’s long absences, a handsome gentleman asked for shelter for a night, which the noblewoman gave him. Shortly afterwards, when her husband returned, his wife greeted him with the good news that she was pregnant.
It is said that when the baby was born the monkey was jealous and when the family wasn’t looking it grabbed the baby and threw him out of the window, killing him.The House de los Pizarro-Espadero dates from the end of the 15th century. It got its nickname from the sculpture of a chained up monkey, which finishes the banister of the main inner staircase. Outside there are three gargoyles that represent a bereaved woman, an old man and a youth and the shield of the family flanked by lions.
