Several buildings face the plaza. Among them is this one, completed in 1899 by the Compania Asturiana de Minas, an international coal- and zinc-mining company. An iron-framed structure faced with stone, brick, and slate, it was the work of the company's manager, Manuel Martinez Angel, who shaped it to fit its unusual site.
