Description:

In October 2010 this beautiful house reopened its doors after a full restoration.
This building was built in 1580 and belonged to the Dean of the Cathedral (thus its name) Tomás de la Plaza. In it you can see two rooms on the second floor with frescos made in the XVI century. These are rare and unique samples of non-religious mural painting in the XVI century in Mexico. Its importance lies in the fact that some of the topics depicted on the walls were considered forbidden by the church for many decades.
