The plant seems like in its geometric formulation to a hexagon streched with defense towers. Three of the towers they're of circular section, another semicircular turret added in the main facade. To both sides there are figured shields with the weapons of Vilamarin's family.
In the interior several dependences exist and there is a gallery too.

I studied cooking in the Vilamarin Institute, and I agree with your description, but I think that Villamarin has an important trouble, the tourist infrastructure. There aren’t restaurants, accommodation offer, tourist office,... In this way, the tourist only can visit this land for a morning or an afternoon and don’t expend his money, therefore don’t product profit or benefit for the local population.
