The doors of the Palacio del Marqués de Mirabel de Plasencia will open this Saturday to celebrate the wedding of Isabelle Junot and Álvaro Falcó, one of the first jet set weddings of the season. These facilities opened to the public in 2011 but only receive visits on rare occasions, such as Tuesday Mayor in Plasencia, and in recent years it has been the setting for series such as ‘Hernán Cortés’, starring the actor Óscar Jaenada, or the American fictional series ‘ Still Star Crossed’, which recreates the story of Romeo and Juliet. But this weekend it will dress up to host a ‘yes, I want’ that will be featured on many covers in the country.

The Palace of the Marquis of Mirabel is a privately owned monument that is among the most important civil monuments in all of Extremadura. The tower and the cellar are the most striking points of this construction. Those attending the link between the ‘influencer’ -daughter of Nina Wendelboe-Larsen and businessman Philippe Junot, ex-husband of Carolina de Monaco- and the fourth Marquis of Cubas will be able to enjoy the views from the Torre del Homenaje, which overlooks the historic center of the city, considered as the best views of the city of Jerte. The tower also contains the bust of Carlos V by Pompeo Leoni, an outstanding element of Plasencia’s historical complex.

This tower, which belongs to the old part of the palace, opened for the first time to the public in 2017, after the building’s owners fixed the access stairs and fitted out the upper part as a viewpoint.

But until you reach this spectacular viewpoint, you can start a tour in the Renaissance courtyard presided over by a central fountain and coats of arms of the palatial lineages. Go up a stone staircase adorned with a tile plinth and reach the upper cloister. From there, go to what is known as the Salón de Carlos V. This room is adorned with large paintings and is also known in the house as the ballroom. It has a small stand for the musicians.

Inside is the signing room, where large 17th-century portraits of the Count of Gondomar and his family can be seen. The oratory chapel displays valuable sculptures from the 16th century. And advance to the pensil. It is a large viewpoint, with a hanging garden that overlooks the Plaza de San Nicolás and can be seen from the outside. It was also built in the XVI. In it are several sculptures and Roman remains from Cáparra and Mérida that were collected by Luis de Ávila y Zúñiga in the 16th century.

Downstairs, a patio that gives access to a medieval kitchen where there is a large fireplace. Next door is the famous hunting trophies hall of the Duke of Arión, with a collection of pieces collected in the first half of the 20th century. There is also a striking period carriage in the museum.

The presence of one of Álvaro’s most popular cousins, Tamara Falcó, Marchioness of Griñón, with whom he has a very good relationship, is expected at this link. It is very possible that we will also see Carlos Torreta and Marta Ortega, Alonso Aznar, as well as the Cortina brothers, Felipe and Carlos, all of them friends of the couple. The marriage will be celebrated in the palace of the Marquis of Mirabel following the family tradition.

‘The ages of man’

The wedding of Isabelle Junot and Álvaro Falcó cannot be held in the Plasencia cathedral, the city’s emblematic temple and one of the most outstanding monuments in Extremadura, where the groom’s father married Marta Chávarri in 1982. With forty years apart, the link between the ‘influencer’ -daughter of Nina Wendelboe-Larsen and businessman Philippe Junot, ex-husband of Carolina de Monaco- and the fourth Marquis of Cubas will have to officiate in another temple, because the seo will not allow the celebration of ceremonies of any kind for a year. The reason is that the cathedral is the main venue for the exhibition ‘The Ages of Man’.
