Bishop of Calahorra Juan Quiñones Guzmán ((2 Aug 1559 – 14 Sep 1576 Died) on a stained glass at The Palacio de los Guzmanes (Guzmanes Palace) in León, Spain.

The current headquarters of the Diputación de León (the provincial government) is one of the most beautiful palaces in the city. Don Juan de Quiñones y Guzmán, bishop of Calahorra, commanded its construction to Rodrigo Gil de Hontañón, the most important architect back then.

It is a place of delicate elegance from the Renaissance, with flair and structural simplicity.

The building’s base is like a trapezoid, with four towers at the corners and an indoor courtyard with columns and beautiful stained glass windows at the second level. The stained glasses was made by Daniel Lopez Merille (1888-1961 died)
