This place gives you a good idea of the style of the time (300 years ago).Was oine of the first permanent buildfigs in colonial Cordoba. Small number of interesting exhibits. Few visitors. Small entrance charge. Near the centre of town, i reckon it is worth half an hour of your time..

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.

Loved the authenticity, though don't see need to go as far as maintaining three hundred years of dust on everything. The English versions of the room descriptions are appalling; as if given under torture by someone... More

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.
