This place is one of the first buildings of the city, a kind of colonial Town House. It was dramatically modified over the years, and later reconstructed. As a museum it is very simple, extremely low budget, but it is worth visiting anyway.

Montserrat is defined by the historical events that
took place there and the landmarks that have stood the
test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of
this connection to history: countless public
demonstrations have passed through this square, going
back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the
