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 of the magnificent lithographs.
Today, the former exhibition rooms on the second floor haven’t lost a bit of their great ambience. 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 shelfs as well as a café, which serves the finest home-made 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.
The location, diagonally opposite of park Santiago, as well as close to center square and most of Mérida’s main tourist attractions, makes this property the ideal place for any kind of commercial use.
