Furnished with Victorian & Edwardian furniture in the 3 rooms including stunning ceiling in the dining room. Heavily managed, no touching, clear guidance as to how to get around. Sometimes special exhibitions as well. Backpacks need to be left in entry room

Hey, you are going to Plaza Grande, and it is free, so check it out! The building dates from 1549. And we'll air conditioned for the items inside...well worth a respite. Remember to leave your bags at the bag hold check area first.
