  • What I like most of this museum is the work embodied in his Studio (there was) the painter Joaquín Clausell. Now well built in Tezontle and Cantera was the House of the counts of Santiago de Calimaya dates back to the 16TH century is a real Museum, one of those noble mansions of epoch that delights the visitor by its architecture and details, no doubt that worth the visit worthwhile, at the main entrance sports the coat of arms being flanked by a pair of columns with capitals attached Ionians. Inside runners, arches and playground are signs of the greatness of their owners. Attractions to visit in this street: the Church of Jesus of Nazareth (Tomb of Hernán Cortés); The Hospital of Jesus and the Church of San Miguel Arcangel. Enjoy the Museum of the city of Mexico. LIFE... it's a TRIP!
