Casa del Obispo (The Bishop´s House) is located on Sollano street, one block from the town center. Recently remodeled by architect Sebastián Zavala and decorated by Anne Marie Midy, this magnificent house still maintains its most distinctive original features, such as the splendid stone archways and high ceilings. In the tradition of old Mexican homes, the rooms cluster around the central patio. In the charming kitchen, contemporary appliances blend with traditional Mexican-style décor. The lush garden and the one-of-a-kind hothouse make Casa del Obispo a dream for gardening devotees. The rooftop terrace with jacuzzi offers unparalleled views of San Miguel.
