Casa de Don Andrés Quintana Roo
Sobria casona del siglo XVIII cuyo valor histórico radica en que en ella se dice que nació en 1787 Don Andrés Quintana Roo, importante figura del México Insurgente, jurisconsulto, embajador, diputado, periodista, poeta y esposo de una gran revolucionaria, Leona Vicario. Quintana Roo nació en Mérida en 1787, el 30 de noviembre y fue hijo de Don José Matias Quintana y Doña Maria Ana de Roo y Rodríguez de la Gala. Su padre y hermano Tomás Domingo participaron en la política.

El investigador Ignacio Rubio Mañé escribe que los paredes del insigne insurgente Don José Matias Quintana y su esposa vivían en la casa ubicada en la esquina noreste del cruce de las calles 62 con 59 y que probablemente allí debe haber nacido Don Andrés. En tiempos del historiador tenía el número 511, pero hoy la numeración ha cambiado. La casona conserva un patio rodeado de arquería y su fachada de estilo colonial, que fue característico de las casonas de la época.

revolutionary collaborator, Leona Vicario. Quintana Roo was born in Mérida on November 30, 1787 and was the son of Mr. José Matias Quintana and Mrs. María Ana de Roo y Rodriguez de la Gala. His father and brother Tomas Domingo participated in politics. Researcher Ignacio Rubio Mañé writes that the parents of the famous rebel, Mr. José Matias Quintana and his wife lived in the house located on the northeastern corner of the crossing of Calles 62 and 59 and that is likely there where Don Andres was born. In the time of the historian it was assigned number 511 but today the numbering has changed.
