Built in 1883, this home has always been an architectural landmark of Colima. Its imposing structure with columns, arches and high ceilings served a dual purpose in its time. The first, functional, allowing good visibility and better ventilation during warm days and the second social, given the high status of its owner, the building reflected his wealth and political power.
In the garden, the original pool built in 1906 was located almost on the edge of the River Colima where running water was pumped. This advanced system for its time had a special filter to remove sand from the river.
The historic character of the property also has some fascinating anecdotes. In the central patio lies a unique citrus tree in Colima. During a courtesy visit of the Chinese Ambassador to Mexico in the nineteenth century, he gave the governor Gildardo Gómez a small chinese tangerine tree. This centenary tree is now 4 feet high, and offers fruit throughout the whole year.
