Casa de MontejoPatrimonio de la Nación
Construida por Montejo el Mozo por indicaciones de su padre D. Francisco de Montejo en 1540, en la fachada sólo se conserva la
Portada de lo que fue la edificación original, la cual ocupó toda la manzana. Esta Portada es la mejor muestra de la aquitectura plateresca en México, y presenta elementos iconográficos alusivos a la conquista y dominación de los mayas por parte de los españoles, así como referencias de la familia Montejo. Destacan
en ella las esculturas de bulto de dos soldados españoles del siglo XVI de pie sobre sendas cabezas gon gestos de dolor o terror, así como otras dos figuras situadas por debajo, con mallas empuñando mazos. Esta casa estuvo habitada hasta principios de los ochentas por descendientes de la familia Montejo.
Montejo's HouseNational Heritage
It was built by Montejo "el Mozo" (junior) as ordered by his father D. Francisco de Montejo in 1540. Its façade only retains the front of the original construction, which occupied a whole block. This façade is the best sample of Plateresque architecture in Mexico, and displays iconographic elements allusive to the Spaniard's conquest and domination over the Mayans, as well as references to the Montejo family. It features the sculptures of two Spanish
soldiers of the 16th century, standing on individual heads with expressions of pain or terror, as well as two other figures located underneath, with armed with mallets. As recent as the early 1980s, this house was inhabited by descendants of the Montejo family.
