Casa Cárcel (Prison House)

General information

One of the oldest buildings in Conil

Casa Cárcel is the second oldest building in Conil. It is located in the Plaza de Santa Catalina and was originally built as a chapter house, for the meetings of the Cabildo and prison.

Until the French invasion the building was used for its original purpose, but after the occupation it was left unusable, burnt and without doors, which meant that the Town Hall meetings were held in the house of the corregidor, at 2 Hospital Street, and the rest of the municipal offices in rented houses, which is why this building was later used only as a prison and municipal warehouse.

During the 1980s, it was the headquarters of the Municipal Police.
