The Big House

According to legend (meaning according to something some guy once told us, which we've never been able to confirm or debunk), this building on the corner of Prospero C. Vega and 15 de Mayo - so large, we couldn't fit it in a single photograph - is a private home, inhabited by one very elderly woman who refuses to sell or leave.


We have no idea if that's true, and a check of four local guidebooks yields nothing, but this is the internet so we can say whatever we want just because we find it interesting. Fact-checking in comments is welcome.

If you knock on the door my abuelita will answer the door. If she is in a good mood, she may invite you in for a bowl of menudo.

I love shit that might be true but can't be verified. I once heard that Oliver Wendall Holmes met both a very old John Quincy Adams and a very young John F. Kennedy. I can't confirm it, but it is interesting.
