  • This building displays a heritage of imagery and furniture from the 16TH to 19TH centuries. Also ceramics, clothing, prints, books and jewelry belonging to the same period. I recommend the recitals of great musical level which are made there.

  • Art from the Spanish colonial era. Lots of religious art and ornate silverware housed in an old mansion surrounde by a walled garden. Worthwhile
