The Museo Casa Luis Barragan is the home and studio of one of the most famous architects in Mexico. The use of color and light creates magical places all around the house. Try to visit on a sunny day to enjoy the garden as well.

Luis Barragan is considered a 'great' of the modernist architects, particularly in his native Mexico. His former home is a delightful mix of space and colour, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are tours in Spanish and English but you MUST pre-book on...More
