Casa de Cultura Banamex, San Miguel de Allende

4 Calle Canal
San Miguel de Allende
Tel: 52 415 152 1004's insider take:

The Casa del Mayorazgo, one of San Miguel's grandest colonial palaces and the former home of the wealthy la Canal family, was completely restored in the 1980s by Banamex, a major supporter of Mexican architecture. Just inside the carved wooden doors are displays of black pottery from Oaxaca, Huichol masks, Guanajuato ceramics, and other collector-quality folk art. The courtyard porticos and fine stone-and-wood carvings are gorgeous examples of colonial-era San Miguel. Photos not allowed.—Maribeth Mellin

Open Mondays through Friday 9 am to 2 pm.
