Museo Adiáct information
This interesting little museum, which also houses the neighborhood’s government and present-day Casa Cultural de Subtiava, is a beautifully muraled building; you may need to ask that it be opened. You’re likely to get a tour that’s as much political as it is historical, detailing how Subtiava has been getting shafted since time immemorial, even by its former allies.
Funeral urns, ceramic tableware, stone statues and more are on display, with very little signage or attempt at a timeline.
