Casa Museo Belisario Dominguez - Museum Comitan De Dominguez - Mexico

Belisario Dominguez was a prominent local doctor and senator in the years leading up to the Mexican Revolution. Just one block south east of the Z贸calo, the Casa Museo Belisario Dominguez is housed in the doctor鈥檚 former residence. Plush with gardens and balconies, the house鈥檚 six rooms showcase knick knacks from Belisario Dominguez鈥檚 life as well as his old pharmacy and surgery. The museum is a must for anyone interested in Mexican history or beautiful 19th century architecture. Belisario famously spoke out against Dictator Victoriano Huerta鈥檚 wayward habit of murdering his political opponents in Congress and was subsequently dispatched of himself. The ensuing scandal contributed to the toppling of the dictator, an event which has been commemorated in Comit谩n with the hero worship of the valiant senator.
