San Cristóbal de La Laguna
- Arquitectura Civil y Doméstica. S.XX y Posterior -

This building located on Consistorio No. 6 street, housed the Colegio de las Madres Dominicas since the architect Mariano Estanga built it in 1912.

The building was erected in the 18th century, its façade responding to the stylistic trends that develop in the transition from the 19th to the 20th centuries and which try to revitalize artistic moments of the late Middle Ages where the use of Gothic and Renaissance motifs was very common. .

It is currently part of the municipal offices.

Antiguo Colegio Dominicas

The facade shows a colored background on which the decorations made in mortar projections around holes and on the roof sill are located. The motifs used are historicist with motifs of late Gothic, such as orthopic arches and tracer ace.

It has two access doors with corrugated frames as if it were archivolts. On the upper floor there are paired windows, and on them the rich decoration of the parapet that hides the roof, whose rhythm is interrupted on the right side to recreate two pinions on both sides of a Latin cross. On the left side of the facade the image of Santo Domingo de Guzm n appears on a base.
