Most important museum of the city of trinidad

The most important of the city, the guide that we got, a descendant of Galicia that was hilarious and sweet, took us a museum: the Romantic Museum that occupies the old palace of the Counts of Brunet House, in the Plaza Mayor the city of Trinidad. Opened on May 26, 1974, it was the 1st institution of its kind in the city, after the triumph of the Revolution. The building is an example of the domestic architecture of the 18th and 19th centuries. The building had 2 construction stages: the ground floor in the year 1740 and it was known as the home of Silva and Álvarez Travieso family until the year 1807, which was bought by José Mariano Borrell and Padron, who ordered the construction of the 2nd floor in the year 1808. It was then inherited by his daughter Angela Lemus Borrell and was inhabited by his family until the year 1857 and left for Spain. In the year 1945 the Association for Trinity acquired the building and it was party restored and was the headquarters of the Association, who made an important work of promoting and safeguarding the Trinitarian culture in the Republican period. The Palacio Brunet, as it is also known, meant to show visitors the ambiance of a colonial house between 1830-1860, which coincides with the period of greatest wealth and height in that era. Through its 14 showrooms have furniture and decorative arts of which 80% belonged to other families in the village. The luxury enjoyed by the social elite is present in exquisite fashion furniture, porcelains and crystals of the most famous European factories. The ostentation of economic power and the desire for social representativeness, have given us the varied examples of 19th-century material culture.
