Layout of medieval manor (Cijara, in Spain)

Greetings.  Long-time lurker, first time poster, always interesting stuff I see here.

Basically, I am helping run an rpg set in early 13th century Castile (Ars Magica).  We have decided to base our covenant (where the magi live and work) in Casa Palacio de Cijara.  However, we've found conflicting sites about the age of the manor (some say 17th century, some say 13th-14th).

What we're looking for is, was this place around in the late 12th-early 13th century?  And if so, what was the layout of the place?  We're looking for something like a floorplan?

And if it wasn't (we can handwave, say it did), would would the layout of a manor house (if that's the right word) that looked similar to that be?

Did several google searches for layout cijara, floor plan cijara, architecture cijara, layout/floor plan Spain/Spanish manor, with no results.  Found some nice pictures of arched walkways, et cetera around Spain, but nothing like what I'm looking for.

Any help would be much appreciated.
