Lonely Planet review for Quinta Gameros
Wealthy mine-owner Manuel Gameros started building the bold, art nouveau Quinta Gameros in 1907 as a wedding present for his much younger fiancée, Elisa Muller. By the time it was finished, three years later, she had died, and soon afterwards the Revolution began and the Gameros family fled Mexico. Pancho Villa would later use it as offices. Today, the house is gorgeously restored and filled with a mix of period furnishings and art from the Universidad de Chihuahua’s permanent collection. Every room is unique and the whole place is a sensuous delight of stained glass, carved and painted wood, sinuous forms, and floral and bird motifs.
