The entrance of the living space is from the southeast.

The kitchen is in the ground floor, with a big chimney where the food was prepared. There were two basements where the food was kept and four big rooms changeable according to the family’s needs. The most decorative part is the rosette in the central part of the ceiling, decorated with grape leaves; the internal part is filled with flowers and circles covered with crowns from the leaves.
