It's one of the nicer building in town, at least in my opinion. It was built by Anibal Gonzalez for the Latin American Exhibition of 1929, as the pavillion of Industrial Arts. It's Mudejar style with a lot of wonderful tiles and bricks, archs and balconies. It hosts the Museum of Popular Arts and Customs and there are two kind of contents inside. You begin for the underground level is an interesting exhib about traditional jobs, as Spanish guitar maker, maker of religious images, potter, hatter, blacksmith or baker. Later the ground level has a collection of typical Spanish furniture, both of popular and of well-to-do people. In addition there are different kind of classical dresses and mantillas (the accessory Spanish women use for special events, as Holy Week, bullfighting or weddings). Unfortunatly it's not allowed to take pictures inside, so I can't show you any of this content.

Este es uno de los edificios más bonitos de las ciudad, al menos en mi opinión. Fue construido por Anibal González para la Exposición Ibero-Americana de 1929 como pabellón del Arte Industrial. Es de estilo mudejar con muchos azulejos y ladrillos, arcos y balcones. Acoje al Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares y tiene dos tipos diferentes de contenido. Empiezas por el sótano tiene una interesante recreación de oficios tradicionales, como fabricante de guitarra española, imaginero, ceramista, sombrerero, herrero o panadero. Después en la planta baja hay una colección de muebles típicos, tanto populares como de gente acomodada. Además hay diferentes clases de vestidos y mantillas (el accesorio que usan las mujeres españolas para acontecimientos especiales como la Semana Santa, los toros o las bodas). Desafortunadamente no se permite hacer fotos dentro, así que no puedo mostrarte nada de su contenido.
