Museo Casa Del Risco (Centro Cultural Isidro Fabela) - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

San Ángel’s Museo Casa del Risco, or House of the Cliff, is an 18th century palace, once the family home of Don Isidro Fabela and Dona Josefina de Fabela. Now it is a free museum, located on Plaza San Jacinto that displays the couple’s extensive collection of 14th to 19th century European and Mexican art. The Casa’s most popular and amusing feature is two-story fountain, which is quirkily encrusted with broken pieces of seashells, Talavera pottery and Chinese porcelain.
