Notes NOTES: The City Hall was designed by Diego de Riano who supervised its construction until his death in 1534. He was succeeded by Juan Sanchez and Hernan Ruiz II (also known as Hernan Ruiz the Younger) who added a loggia overlooking the Plaza de San Francisco after 1560 (subsequently demolished in the 19th century).
