About our home

Casa Parra is a charming, authentic three-story abode in the very heart of the colonial town of Guanajuato, Mexico, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The house dates back to the late 1800s and has been recently updated to provide all measure of modern convenience whilst preserving the integrity, style and material elements of the structure as it was originally built. The house sits adjacent to Plaza Mexiamora, one of Guanajuato's most charming plazas, and is located only a two-minute walk from the Jardin, Guanajuato's town center. Theaters, museums, restaurants and cafes abound and are located a very short walk in any direction from the house. The house itself is located at street level, has three full bathrooms, 2 full bedrooms, large rooftop terrace, dining room, kitchen and several seating areas spread across three stories. Prior to the recent, complete renovations, the home was updated in the 1980s with the assistance of Manuel Parra, a renowned Mexican architect most famous for his work in Mexico City. Manuel Parra was a friend of the previous owner and added several of his trademark flourishes to the home, which have been left intact. This home offers the best of Spanish Colonial architecture - high, beamed ceilings, thick adobe walls, balconies and terraces, and a bougainvillea lined rooftop with a panoramic view of the entire town. Come stay in the heart of Mexico.
