If you can find the old Banco Anglo you'll enjoy the recent restoration of this historic San Jose building in addition to the latest exposition, works by Eugenia Vega. Here is a sneak peak at the exhibit. To see this building and more special sites, book one of our city tours or yoga/massage packages.
It's impossible to walk by this architectural marvel, crumbling right before your eyes, and not want to know it's story, to rescue it, to see it live again.
This beautiful and mysterious building is Casa Jiménez. Built in 1905 it was designed by it's original owner, lawyer and diplomat Manuel Francisco Jiménez Ortiz. It is one of the only remaining Art Nouveau style buildings in the city, and it's a feature on our Bird's Nest Tour.
We are excited to announce that a few weeks ago La Nacion ran a story reporting that work would start in about 15 days to initially repair the roof and exterior parts suffering great damage. On tour this week we saw that the work has begun! Can't wait to see what the future will bring to this historic gem.
