Palacio cantero

Interesting palace that houses the town museum, very interesting furniture and architecture of the building. Some history of the building: The Palace was built by the sugar planter José Mariano Borrell y Padrón to be a dwelling house in the first half of the nineteenth century, 1827-1830. Borrell y Padrón died in 1830 leaving the house completely finished and furnished, the child Jose Mariano Borrell y Lemus inherited, in 1841 he sold it to his cousin Maria de Montserrat Fernández de Lara y Borrell, who acquired ownership of the property. In 1842 she married Justo Germán Cantero Owen Anderson who happens to be the representative of their property. The house, known since then as the Palacio Cantero, passed successively to various family members until April 1920 when it was acquired by "Antonio Mauri and brothers" who were in the snuff business. In June 1947 it passed to the the Association for Trinidad, that long devoted to Arts and Crafts School.
