Santiago de Querétaro in Municipality of Querétaro, Querétaro, Mexico — The Central Highlands
Arcade of Samaniego
En El siglo XIX, el gobernador queretano Rafael Olvera fue su propietario, y posteriormente lo fue la familia Fernández de Cevallos. La ubicación de la casona, en una rinconada que asoma a la Plaza de Armas, le confiere una gracia particular. Actualmente es ocupada por el Archivo del Poder Judicial.
Much later, in the 19th century, the governor of Queretaro, Rafael Olvera, was the owner. Later ownership passed to the family of Fernandez de Cevallos. The location of the mansion at a prominent intersection in the Plaza de Armas gives it an unusual charm. It is currently occupied by the Archives of the Judicial Power.
