A lion watches over our history


This is our National Historical Museum. It´s located on Lezama Park Between the San Telmo quarter and the Balvanera quarter. It is inside the fromer mansion of the Lezama, a very wealthy family, built in italian-style and holding 30 rooms. It tells our history after the conquest and colonization by the Spanish, through the jesuit missions and the war of Independence. I have to tell you, it´s a nice place to visit although it´s not my favourite...I'd rather go to the Ethnographic Museum that has all the history before there was destruction and mass murdering going on. I´ll post several pictures of it later on. Posted by Picasa
