  • A very stately house in very good condition. It is a museum house with objects, furniture and other family materials. They allow us a glimpse of the time. When we went there was an exhibition of local textiles.

  • It's free. If you see a line, it's for using the ATMs. (Most of the building is converted to a bank now). Just go in and check your bags. The guards were super sweet and helpful. The art was a great collection and it was cool to learn a little about the colonialist history by walking through the home.
  • Great museum in center of Merida, across main square and park. If you love hispano architecture and style its place for you. You can see many different rooms with antiques and all is for free! Must visit in Merida!
