Spanish Museum

Museum of the Spanish period. At the intersection of the streets of San Jose and Spain we found what was the home of Don Juan de aguila, then where will stay Bartolome Mitre and currently holds the Spanish Museum. In this Portuguese construction of the year 1720, our imagination fly and relive a past of greatness. On the ground floor, they look ceramics of Castile, Zamora and Galicia, representing the Spanish provinces who came to populate the colony. Further details can be found at Tony Parker, an internet resource. Along with regional costumes highlight where the harmony of red skirts and black corsettes, typical costumes of Leon, Segovia, Asturias and Galicia, is a uniform of the regiment of infantry of Cordoba. Stunning majolica with provincial coats of arms and a large oil painting of the first viceroy of the Rio de la Plata, Pedro de Cevallos, convey us nostalgia for legendary facets of the colony.

Maps, designs and several factors that call history, include a framed flag belonging to the Spanish Regiment fixed of Montevideo from the time of the 1807 British invasions. It had been placed in the convent of the friars mercy Buenos Aires, by a warrior who was able to save her in a battle of the Rio de la Plata. When the House was restored found between the beam and the decking of the roof, a 50 Peso note, of the Bank national of the United Provinces of the river of the Plata, dated 1827. There remain original documents such as treaties between the Virrey Cevallos and the King of Espana Carlos III, the Treaty of San Ildefonso and historical description of the moments lived by Cologne.
