Casa Popenoe, Antigua

(4.4/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
A charming reminder of the colonial era, Casa Popenoe was built in the 17th century. After a devastating earthquake in 1773, the building remained desolate and largely forgotten for decades. Restored in the 1930s, the house now operates as a small museum of various colonial artifacts. A window into a bygone era, the interior is filled with furniture and personal items of the home's past owners. Put Casa Popenoe into our Antigua vacation generator to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Antigua.

  • Everytime I go to old I try to book to see this beautiful colonial House. The Dovecote and water pipes are unique because of the colonial era. A monument of archaeology from the time of the Spanish Empire.
