From the outside, it looks just like any other old house from the turn of the century. Considering its location and the name of the owners, it should have been better presented to the public who might be interested in a bit of history. Unlike...More

As part of the city tour, we went to this house where we saw many old furnitures. We were delighted to see old "peinetas" and big perfume bottles. You have to pay 30 pesos per head before you enter.

We visited on a weekday so there's really nobody there. Most of the furnitures are from the same era as the house(not original) but it gives justice to the lay out. It will be helpful if they have labels with information on the significant parts...More

The building was closed up at the time of my visit as I believe it is a private house. Whilst a little disappointing, the outside is interesting and it did give me time to read up some more about this lovely town. (Check with the...More
