    The Museum of architecture is a fine example of 18th-century colonial House, the House has many authentic details that are difficult to see in the city. Their amazing decorated wooden ceilings, your beautiful floors of marble and slabs of clay. It has the original gas installations as well as the waterways to their central aljibe.

The Museum moreless takes you from the beginnings of the city and their homes until the 19th century
