Hidalgo House Museum, the Little France


After the order to return to Valladolid, Hidalgo received the parish on January 24th, 1793, and bought a house near the church, on the main street, La Alcantarilla (now called Hidalgo), which was inhabited by the priest and his family between 1793 and 1803. There took place the famous literary and political soirees where he and other personalities entered in contact with the liberal ideas coming, mostly, from France (thus the name of the Little France).

On 1957, by presidential decree, a part of the house was expropriated. Two years later, the General Office of National Properties of the National Property Secretariat, handed it in custody to the Office of Colonial Monuments of INAH for its reconstruction. On 1963 started the works to reconstruct it to condition it as a museum, an institution that opened its doors on 1969, after the placement of the stone pavement in the central courtyard, which recreates a garden in the style of the manors of that time.
