One of the most popular museums in the Colonial City. Completed around 1512, this Gothic and Renaissance style palace was the home of Diego Columbus, son of Christopher Columbus, and his wife María de Toledo, niece of King Ferdinand of Spain.
Tucked at the corner end of Calle Las Damas, just before the Plaza de España esplanade—look for the double bell tower design—the Gothic style “Chapel of Our Lady of Remedies” opens its doors for occasional art and classical music events, and group tours. Originally built in the 16th century by the Dávila family, the 500-year old chapel was intended as a private religious shrine, where prominent Spanish families would congregate for prayers. It was restored in 1884, and you can view its stunning interior arches inside, period art, and a figure of the Virgen de los Remedios at the altar.
