Escoriaza-Esquibel palace,in Vitoria, is the first wholly Renaissance palace in the Basque Country. It was completed towards 1540. However, before it was built up, during the first third of the 16th century, many fine residences were built as innovative architecture model trials by court officials and members of the old local families. There is no homogeneity regarding conceptual criteria and, for this reason, among the new Basque aristocratic dwelling houses there are many vertical or compact buildings linked to the prestigious image of the Gothic Tower Houses along with other palaces in which courtyards and galleries of Mediterranean origin are being incorporated.
