This house dates back to the 16th century and consists of two buildings connected by a plaster arch. Its architecture and decoration shows Christian and Moslem elements. Arches and columns of old constructions were re-used, and therefore it is thought that originally it was part of the Islamic palace "Dar al-Bayda" (the White House).
The "Chapiz" House was named after its owners, the Moorish "Lorenzo" 'the Chapiz' and "Hernándo López" 'the Ferí'. From 1932 the School of Arab Studies is located here.
