Quinta Gameros information
Built in an incredibly elaborate belle epoque architectural style by a wealthy mine owner, this museum is filled with a mix of period furnishings and art. Every room is unique and, while the quality of the stained glass, carved wood and moldings is no doubt high, the overall impression is of the most criminal bad taste. It's definitely worth a look around though, as it is certainly one of Chihuahua's most unforgettable buildings.
Manuel Gameros started building 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 afterward the Revolution began and the Gameros family fled Mexico. To add yet more color to the story, some guides tell that Elisa fell for Colombian architect Julio Corredor and ran off with him instead.
