Casa Catherwood is one of Mérida’s real authentic historical buildings. The colonial façade is simply gorgeous! The house used to be a museum lately, which was dedicated to Frederick Catherwood. He published in 1844 the book “Views of Ancient Monuments in Central America, Chiapas & Yucatan”. The book presented the astonishing images of the pre-Hispanic monuments of the region, which continued to astonish and delight even more than 170 years later. The museum displayed a collection of 25 magnificent lithographs.

Today, the former exhibition rooms on the second floor haven’t lost a bit of their great ambiance. They form now a self-contained suite, which is rented out to guests. The suite consists out of a living room, a bedroom as well as a bathroom, and a beautiful roof terrace.

Downstairs you are going to find a quaint bookstore, equipped with fine wooden shelves as well as a café, which serves the finest homemade chocolate products. Two inner courtyards and a hallway with a high ceiling provide ample seating. A massage room, a bar, and a big kitchen, as well as two further storage rooms, complete this great offer.

LOCATION

Considered one of the oldest neighborhoods of Merida, Barrio de Santiago has a lot of history dating back nearly 400 years. It is by far one of the most demanded, colorful, and well-restored neighborhoods. Many Americans and Canadians reside here and have renovated colonial-style homes.

A great number of Mérida’s main tourist attractions like theaters, galleries, museums, as well as lots of fine restaurants and famous parks like Parque Santiago, Parque Santa Lucia, or Plaza Grande with the main cathedral are within walking distance. So is the meanwhile famous Mérida English Library (MEL), a popular meeting place for many English-speaking visitors and residents.

The combination out of its fantastic location, great colonial architecture, and wide range of cultural and leisure activities makes Santiago absolutely unique and a great place to live!
