The house on calle Arzobispo Meriño 464 is an old colonial home according to its architectural details, spaces and finishing touches, giving it the allure that characterizes yesteryear residences. The name given to the house reflects the fact that the manor and adjoining house belonged to a popular military officer from the late 19th century, General Abelardo Nanita, respected and closely tied to the City Council, where he proposed major actions for the then progressive urban improvements. ￼At the main gate of the colonial city walls, the Puerta del Conde, the general ordered the placing of an inscription that is now a known detail. It reads: “Dulce et Decorum est propatria mori” Sweet and honorable to die for the Fatherland. After a careful restoration process completed in 2010, the house was rehabilitated to host the Imagen 83 Fundation, which has developed a major activities program featuring photo exhibits, art showings, and theater shows of great artistic interest.
