Casa Popenoe, Antigua

4.6
#9 of 14 in Historic Sites in Antigua
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.

  • If you love avocados, and fell in love with the architecture of Antigua this is a must visit. Reservation required and guides are volunteers. They know very little about his contributions to the tropical biology and dendrology. So read up. Makes for a much richer visit. Also, the guides are quite temperamental. Slow down in the backyard garden stretch.
  • Small place for meetings, with a great garden in the back. Loved the setting and the ambience of the place.
  • We were here for a very interesting conference. They have different events throughout the year.
  • Good
  • Amazing house.
