  • Historic mansion that holds a Museum of antique pieces related to the history of Taxco. Worth the visit for being cheap, where I got a cool photo of the Hotel las Misiones, where I stayed.

  • The House has a beautiful facade and inside you can find paintings, pictures, sculptures and furniture of the Viceroyalty. It is a small museum, but it is worth visiting it. The different rooms lead us to the history of Taxco and its most important churches. At the entrance of the tour is the instrument with which punish the unfaithful women of the era, impressive. Discount is there a for students, teachers and the elderly.

  • Although small the Museum, guardian sacred art which features stories by itself with more than 250 years old, brought directly from the Church of santa Prisca worth admiring detail the great work of master craftsmen of ancient times that give us a part of the history of the place as well as a sample of his great technique not to be missed if you're going to Taxco!

  • They do not let you take pictures inside the Museum. The explanation they give you is so detailed that it gives you a broad class of history of Taxco, parts that are displayed are interesting and also know a House whose construction was in the years from 1800. 100% worth visiting this Museum
