REVIEW

The House of Ajaracas was built at the end of the 16th century, it owes its name to the eight-pointed decorations. We owe  the architect Ildefonso de Iniesta the reconstruction of the part of the house that is preserved today. It was the point of origin from where Alfonso García Bravo, Hernán Cortés’ master builder, planned the New Spanish city.

A part of the present building was given to the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), the other is used for Mexico City’s Photographic Archive. It is a constriction of 272 square meters.
