The Casa Luis Barragán is a House and Studio museum. Built in 1948, it’s among the most important 20th century architectural works in the city. Recognised by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site as of 2004, it’s the only individual property in Latin America to hold such a recognition. Barragán’s tremendous influence on modernist Mexican architecture can be seen and felt in nearly every corner of this and many other Mexican cities.

  • Importantly, the site can only be visited with a reservation made at least one day in advance. Tours are guided Mondays through Fridays only. To request a tour, please send an email to casaluisbarragan@gmail.com, or call +52 (55) 5515 4908.

Within, each room is designed to enrich the experience of the function for which it is intended. Warm and serene spaces allow lines and colors to mark the rhythms. All furnishings and decorations are original and combine artisanal production with religious and contemporary works of art.

This house-museum includes the residence and workshop and is the property of the State Government of Jalisco and the Tapatia Luis Barragan Architecture Foundation.
