1. Regional Artisans' Center “Zací” Marker
Centro Regional de Artesanías “Zací”
Es probable que originalmente haya sido parte del inmueble que hoy conocemos como la Casa Cural, subdivida y remodelada a fines del siglo XIX con su segundo piso y fachada con estilo francés muy de moda en la época. La información mas remota y precisa que se tiene sobre el inmueble ya remodelado es que en septiembre de 1906 se estableció en su planta alta la Escuela Central Modelo y era propiedad del gobierno, en junio de 1908 se estableció la catédra de Ejercicios Militares; por los 40´s la habitó una familia de apellido Bolio; después se convirtió por más de 60 años en la escuela primaria “Delio Moreno Cantón”, hasta 2007 cuando fue reubicada. La administración 2007-2010 reaprovecho el inmueble para Centro Artesanal de Valladolid en el que alberga a artesanos del municipio.

with the current in those times. The oldest and most precise information on hand about the refurbished building is that in September of 1906, the Model Central School was established in the top level when the building was government owned. In June 1908 the Military Exercises Professorship was established. Around 1940, the Bolio family inhabited it and afterwards it became Delio Moreno Cantón Elementary School for over 60 years, up to 2007 when it was relocated. The 2007-2010 administration used the building to place the Valladolid Handcraft Center, which houses local artisans from the municipality.
