Lonely Planet review
Formerly a palace of the Counts of Santiago de Calimaya, this 18th-century baroque edifice now houses a museum with temporary exhibits focusing on city history and culture.

The artist used the four walls of the windowless room as an ongoing sketchbook during the three decades that he worked here until his death in 1935.
