It is situated in a construction dating back to the third decade of the XIX century, that actually constitutes one of the better-preserved traces of the Cuban colonial era in the city with its typical red-tiled roofs and clay tile floors.
In it was born, in the now distant year of 1846, Serafín Sánchez Valdivia: independence leader of the Sancti Spiritus region during the struggles for emancipation from Spanish dominion, who rose to the rank of Major General of the mambises troops.
