体験できること

I will explain the facade of the house, considered by INAH an outstanding example of colonial architecture. I will explain the construction of a house built with walls of 'piles of rock' (mamposteria) which 'breathe'. I will show the house room by room, with ceilings 24 feet high, pointing out the original state of the structure which has not been ruined with 'modernization'. I will explain how the restoration of this house retained carefully the original colonial character....it is not a 'modern American house'! I will explain the interesting African collection of art and furniture which fill the house. The African collection consists of furniture, carvings and other art objects as well as masks and paintings. It is interesting how the heavy, dark furnishings of Africa work well with the imposing size of the rooms and ceilings. I will also explain a bit the context and interesting history of this house, situated in colonial San Cristobal, Merida centro. This experience will add to the visitors' overall impressions and understanding of the colonial center of this fascinating city.

I am an anthropologist/historian very interested in the culture & history of this fascinating city. Yucatan's history is unique in Mexico; the house, 150 years old, is a beautiful example of 'colonial' when the wealthy looked to Europe, especially France, as their ideal. The house facade is one of the finest (according INAH -Institut of Anthropology & History) in the city. In addition, the house contains African art and furniture collected during my 25 years' work in Africa. I am an 'Africanist', specializing in the history and anthropology of Eastern Africa.

実施場所

My house in San Cristobal, one of the original barrios in Merida's Historial Centro. The Montejos, who established Merida in 1542, used this barrio to house the indignenous people brought from central Mexico to help pacify the Maya. San Cristobal was later a focus for the Lebanese migrants and the house is near the main city market, Lucas de Galvez.
