Fodor's Review

Reconstructed more than five times, this 17th-century colonial building, once a chaplaincy, is now a brightly colored cultural center. It was originally home to Silvestre de Valdés, a Catholic priest who served as a corregidor (a Spanish official who acts as governor, judge, and tax collector) and oversaw construction of the nearby Catedral. The house had a long history of changing owners until its present owner, Sra. Ana Maria Piño Jordán, bought it at public

auction. Now a vibrant cultural locale, with an arts cooperative, it houses a fair-trade café, a library, and a few upscale handicraft stores. The exhibition hall displays works by local artists and hosts music events.
