Built 1877-1890 for Manuel Alonso, the Alonso Building (Los Dos Cañones) has wrought iron railings and doors reminiscent of French Creole architecture.
It was one of several buildings built by immigrants from Spain. The first floor served as a dry goods business and the second floor as a home for the family. It was restored by the Gorgas Science Foundation.
