City raised from the ruins

The market square in Dukla

This is an excellent example of the buildings of a small Galician town with a preserved urban layout. The town itself is old, its history dating back to the 14th century, but the present market buildings largely date from the 19th century. The oldest element is the Renaissance town hall (17th century) with a neo-Gothic facade and a small tower in the southeastern corner. It stands in the middle of the market square, surrounded by 23 art nouveau and early modern townhouses. It is worth mentioning that most of the buildings were reconstructed after World War II, following the severe damage the town suffered during the fights in 1944.
