The mainly white house features four floors and incorporates a ramp and spiral staircase located between the house and the medical office on the first floor.

  • Went with a friend that studies engineering civil so knew explain me, because the visits not are guided, it good is that the tickets are cheap ($35 approx) and make discounts to students of architecture. There is no time limit and is a very interesting place to visit.

  • The only work in south america for Le Corbusier (pioneer swiss architect) If you are foreigner you'll pay 150 pesos, if local 60 or 30, if local student 15 pesos. You have about 30 minutes to visit all the house alone. Take photos and set a little bit on the terrace. There are sketches for the place exhibited on 2nd floor, plus some of the house plans & sections.
  • Es linda.
  • I didn't get a chance to go inside
  • Excellent House, only work by Le Corbusier in Latin America, and now declared a world heritage by the UNESCO
