ARGENTINA ~The House of Archbishop Colombres-Tucumán~

My second card today also shows a great building, beautiful reflected in the water...But I just don't know why they put a sticker on front of the card???Thanks Viviana!

Love the stamps too!

It is situated inside 9 de Julio Park in San Miguel de Tucumán. Bishop Colombres's Home is one the most interesting examples of colonial houses of late 18th century. It consists of two stories with quebracho beam ladders dating from the time it was built. The place was restored around 1913 for the last time.
In its interior are pieces of furniture belonging to its owner, Bishop Eusebio Colombres, apart from some portraits of Argentine national heroes painted by Lola Mora and old coins and bills collections.
The house was declared to be a Historic National Monument in August, 1941.
