This corner building dates from the early twentieth century and it is surmounted by a statue of a lion. The latter refers to the commercial rivalry between Manuel Ballesteros, former owner of this corner and Don Viola, who opened a store nearby and placed an enormous poster with a picture of a tiger on the watch. Thus, the stores became known as “The Tiger” and “The Lion”.

In order to attract customers, the owners started lowering prices. Consequently, some goods were sold by derisory sums, which resulted in the approval of the neighbours. Currently, there is a project for the comprehensive restoration of the façade.
