Today we're taking you on a stroll down the mansion lined Paseo Montejo to visit Casa Museo Montes Molina. It was constructed between 1876 - 1911 by Don Aurello Portuondo y Barcelo, a wealthy business man from Havana, for his new bride. They kept the home until 1915 when politics and the Mexican Revolution made it necessary for Don Aurello to return to Cuba. He sold the home to Don Avelino Montes Linaje, whose descendants still occasionally occupy the home. Kept in its original condition, it is furnished as it was in Don Avelino's time.
Marble tiled entry foyer
Parlor and ceiling molding detail
Dining room with Murano glass chandelier. Detail of Tiffany glass created for the room's French doors.
