Dolores Olmedo Gallery: It was the old house of Mrs. Dolores Olmedo, patron and friend of artists and intellectuals, amongst them the renowned artist Diego Rivera, who was a guest of the house in 1956, creating a mural, on an external wall and on the ceiling of a terrace, of neat pre-Hispanic influence using mixed techniques in which he utilized mosaics and stones of natural colours.
