Casa Popeone, Antigua

Casa Popenoe is a private home open for public viewing. The house was built in 1636 for the Spanish judge Don Luis de las Infantas Mendoza. Today, the home illustrates wonderfully how wealthy people lived in the colonial era. The house was partly destroyed by an 18th century earthquake, but has since undergone a full scale restoration at the beginning of the 20th century.
