History of the house
The old part of the house was amongst the first houses being built in Santa Cruz. In those times it was usual that houses had two entrances, one on each street. In case of an attack, while the pirates were knocking on the front door, the residents could escape through the back door. The building always housed a home and a shop or a small home manufacture: for instance, wax figurines for the church were made here. The old building housed one of the first daily papers of La Palma and the famous painter Manuel González Méndez was born here. The original house was built around 350 years ago, but was renovated and expanded a few times. The patio and the garden were built upon, the last time in 2005 with the Hotel San Telmo.
