Casa de los Sopranis

Calle Sopranis is the street that runs between the Plaza de San Juan de Dios and the compass of Santo Domingo Monastery.  It was one of the city’s most important streets during the 17th and 18th centuries, as the proximity to the port meant that leading families of the shippers to the Indies settled there.
Number 10 was the house belonging to the powerful Genoese family of the Sopranis or Lilas. It was built in the second half of the 18th century.  It has a stonework Baroque entrance, with the family coat-of-arms, and it is richly decorated with plant designs, among which some mermaids are entwined.  Number 9 has an elegant marble entrance, dating back to 1760, whose concave structure recalls the architectural features used in the New Cathedral.
Number 11 is a good example of Baroque residential architecture in Cadiz. It is thought to be from the mid 18th century and its façades have pilasters, making use of their confluence to add an overlaying of columns.
