22. Taoro Lyceum

This little urban palace was erected in 1928 at the behest of the Ascanio Monteverde couple, following eclecticist guidelines found in a Belgian cultural magazine of the time. It stands out for the monumentality of its volumes, as well as for its privileged location, on top of an urban platform from which the lower area of the Historic Centre can be contemplated. Since 1975, it has been the home of the prestigious Sociedad Cultural Liceo de Taoro (Taoro Lyceum Cultural Society), a benchmark space for the holding of art exhibitions, concerts and conferences. The Liceo de Taoro has sports facilities such as paddle and tennis courts, as well as a swimming pool.
