  • A cool spot in the otherwise oppressive heat. The grounds and building are well kept and clean. Very pretty and nice to see in the town  more »
  • MU interesting place, despite being small. It takes you 20 minutes travel, you can appreciate very antique furniture.

  • The main objective of my visit was the Bank that is inside, but then I saw that there was a Museum and going on family, we decided to enter. There are no words to describe the exquisite taste with which the House is decorated. Simply opulent occurs to me. It is a "House Museum", original property of Francisco de Montejo the younger, with a facade that is full of hidden symbolism. Next to the Museum, it is advisable to various galleries and exhibitions, which normally can be found there. 100% recommendable if you like photography, history and taste for antiques and interior design.
