A nice, quiet museum based on a mansion belonging to a wealthy familiy. You go through the various rooms, to some extent resembling the function they would have had back in the day. Among other things you could visit the private quarters of the house where the husband, wife and children lived the personal life. Quite interesting.

This shows you how early life was for a Spanish Grandee governor and his family. Notice all the courtyards and the lack of hallways for communicating through the rooms. On one courtyard, I found five pigeon nests. It's a quiet place.

The museum offers a good overview of life in colonial times in Cordoba. Much is still original. During holidays, it is often closed, we can recommend the coffee shop Charlie Chaplin on the other side - very nice service.
