Antigua casona de Doña Josefa Escudero y Aguirre
Esta casona fue residencia de Doña Josefa Escudero y Aguirre, esposa de Don José Ignacio Pardío y Puerto e hija de Don Pedro Manuel Escudero Gilón y Doña María Francisca de Aguirre y Quijano. De antigua estirpe conquistadora y encomendera, la Sra. Escudero, quien era famosa por su recio carácter, nació en Campeche en 1772 y vino a Mérida con su padre, Don Pedro, cuando éste fue nombrado “Factor del Tabaco”. Y sin duda, lo más significativo de este período fue que la señora Escudero fue la anfitriona de numerosas reuniones para los representantes del partido conservador, opuesto al grupo que celebra sus juntas en la mansión de enfrente, la casa de Doña Joaquina Cano y Roo.

Posteriormente, en los años 50, la residencia se vende al Sr. Antonio Mimenza Ortiz, quien en 1956 abrió el “Hotel Sevilla” de gran tradición, que funcionó hasta finales del siglo XX.

character, was born in Campeche in 1772 and came to Mérida with her father, Don Pedro, when he was named “Factor del Tabaco”. And what is undoubtedly most significant about this period was that Mrs. Escudero was the hostess of numerous meetings for the representatives of the conservative party while the opposite party held its meeting across the street at the home of Mrs. Joaquin Cano y Roo.

In 1956 Mr. Antonio Mimenza Ortiz opened the “Hotel Sevilla”, which operated until the end of the 20th century.
