Marquesa de Uluapa House

It is not know why it is called the Marquesa de Uluapa House as neither the marquesa or her family lived there. It is famous because of the tiled interiors, with different life-size figures representing servants, butlers and shoemakers. A highlight is the image of a wealthy woman of the eighteenth century. The original house was comissioned in the sixteenth century by the conquistador Hernando de Ávila, but was later demolished by Nicholas Cobian,  who built the present building dating from 1766. The facade has plants, chains, scrolls, mollusk shells and carved masks. To visit this house, you must take the guided tour. The entrance fee depends on the size of the group entering.
