Casa de Ofe (Ofe's House) and Leather Workshops

Villa del Carbón

One of the best ways to explore a new destination is through its relics. The Casa de Ofe (Ofe's House) museum boasts dozens of historical artifacts, some of which date back to the 1800's. Over the course of her life, its owner, Ofelia Reyes, has collected artifacts that exalt local farmworkers' lives, as a sort of homage to her parents.

Ofelia narrates that she once traveled to the Pueblo Mágico of Metepec and asked the artisans there to create four sculptures depicting Villa del Carbón's farmworkers. Her collection continued to grow, until it occupied an entire room.

Her passion led to a collection of objects that represent the lives of twentieth-century farmworkers. Take a stroll through the study, the dormitory, the kitchen, and the hunter's room. Keep an eye out for a fully-functioning nineteenth-century rifle and record player.

No sojourn to Villa del Carbón is complete without a visit to the leather workshops housed by this Pueblo Mágico. The century-long tradition finds its origin in a group of residents who began to make artisanal and custom-made charro boots.
