  • Colonial house that is named after its previous owners, linked to mine and agriculture, is the building with more tradition in La Serena, with adobe perimeter walls, with floors, partitions and wooden ceilings and marble passages. The octagonal square-based tower is perhaps the most visited site in this city, stands on the main facade surrounded by a railing and window doors that give it an air of viewpoint. An interesting detail are the wooden weeds of its ceiling, some locals mention that they are original and lair, but could not be confirmed. This property was built in 1855 by English master Thomas James. In 1968, Dona Aurora Carmona de Woodward donated it to the congregation of the Salesian parents, who are its current owners.
