Feel fully amazed in the Santa Veracruz chapel
“Veracruz, little corner where the sea waves nest. Veracruz, little corner of our country that knows how to suffer and sing”, is part of a lyric wrote by Agustin Lara some time ago, telling about the lands where he was born. This famous Mexican singer-songwriter has the museum La Casita Blanca, where the artist was born.
FEEL THE RHYTHM OF AGUSTIN LARA
Agustin Lara’s house, which listened to his creations, is now a beautiful museum featuring several of Lara’s personal objects, as well as a number of photographs where he appears with famous stars of his time and those who most influenced his career. The old house also serves as a gallery and is often used by artists wishing to exhibit their work in one of its beautiful showrooms.
