Beautiful house, near the central square, built at the beginning of the previous century, with an architectural design of Eclecticism, it was very well preserved and today turned into a museum by the House of Culture of Tarija, allows you to go back in time and see how the wealthiest people in that area lived in the early 1900's. It has a guided walk that lasts less than an hour, but is very good.

Construction of this art nouveau building began in 1887 for Moises Navajos and his wife Esperanza Morales. They had no children, and the grand building fell into disarray until it was renovated in the 1980s. The ground floor contains an art gallery and concert hall. During the day guides take you upstairs to view the original living space, including the salon, dining room, and a chapel. Guides speak only Spanish.

The guides only speak spanish but they are very nice ladies. The guide tour is free and there is often free concerts with bolivian musicians and sometimes world wide musicians

We have stayed here 3 times. It has the perfect location. It is a short walk to the marina and local restaurants. The service while sitting around the beach and pool were great. One thing we noticed is that they seem to be saving money in some areas. We had to constantly request extra towels for the room. They normally provided slippers and when requested they said the didn't do this. Well, we have been there twice before and they were always in the room. We did get our slippers. Overall, we would stay there again because they do keep it very clean, views are great and location is perfect.
