    Relevance focuses on the architectural value of the building, which dates back, presumably, from the mid-18th century and collecting all Hispanic, mudejar and Baroque, traces of Cuban colonial architecture, with influences from other styles including neoclassical and Rococo. In the first decades of the 18th century dwelling that existed at the site was a wooden. Later and towards the second half of the same century was built the high and low house inhabited by the family Agramonte Recio; She was born on December 23, 1841 Ignacio Agramonte and Loynaz, later major General of the army liberator of of the ten years war. Its historic and symbolic distinction is the second index of importance, value that takes credit for national history, for being the place where was born the hero of the independence of Cuba Ignacio Agramonte y Loynaz. Both of these reasons were considered by the National Commission of monuments to declare it a national monument. The House-Museum has an atmosphere of the 19th century, showing an era sequence through original furniture and pieces of decorative arts. It has a historical information that recounts the work of Ignacio Agramonte on the first war of independence. The birthplace of "El Mayor", as it is also called, is a site that shows the historical and artistic aspects of the typical housing principena.

    It is an ancient Palace that stands out for its simple and austere architecture, almost discordant with other buildings, some colorful, overlooking the square.
