“Beautiful colonial residence”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

This is the former home of local patriot Ignacio Agramonte, who died in battle in 1873. It is a beautifully restored colonial residence – one imagines that many of the dilapidated buildings in the area were once like this one, two stores above ground level, open courtyard, big rooms with high ceilings, and finely-carved furniture from Spain and elsewhere. There isn’t any English-language signage, but the arrangement of furniture is self-evident, and the Spanish-speaking staff will try their best to tell you about each piece. The rustic kitchen is a fascinating contrast to the polished dining room and bedroom and the only disappointment is that only a few rooms are open for viewing, the rest are closed – perhaps they don’t have enough authentic furniture to go around.

“Well kept museum and very interesting”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

I did not like having to pay to take photos, however, it is another way to raise money toward the upkeep of the museum
