Get a glimpse into the lifestyle of well-off families and Jesuit priests during Spanish colonial times at 1730 Jesuit House. This 18th-century house served as the home of the religious community during its heyday, before falling from grace somewhat as it became a warehouse. Today, the building's owners have transformed it into a museum, where you can learn about Jesuit history. As you enter, pay close attention to the gate, where you can see a Jesuit seal carved into the finery. The exterior has preserved its original look, while the interior gives off a contemporary vibe thanks to a series of renovations over the years. However, wooden antique furniture captures the historical ambiance of this hidden gem of the city.

A house museum with lots of history. The tour guide (Christian if I recall correctly) was very eager to share the museum history and was easy to talk with. He knew when to give us time to read the displays. The owner, Jimmy, was very pleasant to speak witb and understand more about the history and life in general. Highly recommend
Amazing tour guide! Seemed to know a ton of history, not just about the house; but the city, country, and with politics and how it all mixed.
