Casa de la Marquesa, Querétaro, Querétaro, 18th Century

<p>Casa de la Marquesa, Querétaro, Querétaro, 18th Century</p>

This delicately feminine house was built for the Marquesa de la Villa del Villar del Aguila, who preferred to live separately from her husband. The rich ornamentation of the house comes from both the Mudéjar and the Baroque traditions. Everything undulates, curves and sparkles with color. Built in 1756, the house was recently renovated and made into a small luxury hotel.
