Reserva Biosfera La Palma

Embroidery and Corpus Christi Museum

It is a double story building of neoclassical construction with four facades of elegant proportions surrounded by beautiful gardens. It was the family house of Leopoldo Pérez Díaz and dates from the beginning of the 19th century. Afterwards, there followed several heirs and buyers, until the 70s during the 20th century, when it was known as Casa Roja (Red House) on account of the color chosen for its facade.  
After having been acquired by the City Council, between 1994 and 1996, it was restored having recovered its original structure. Nowadays, it is the house of the Corpus Christi and Embroidery Museums.

Corpus Informational Center:
It occupies the building's ground floor and it shows all types of reproductions, documents, illustrations and pictures making reference to the Corpus Christi Celebration since the beginning up to the present times.

Embroidery Museum:
It is located in the upper ground of Casa Roja (Red House) and offers a great variety of this remarkable handmade modality. Embroideries and laces have been, throughout this century, the basic activity of the handicraft of La Palma. Casa Roja counts inside with a Local Handicraft Sale Point and a Food and Agricultural Products Store.
