SOME HISTORY ABOUT CASA DEL CONDE  PESTAGUA 

The first part of this house was built by 1650 and was continued by ANDRÉS DE MADARIAGA y MORALES, COUNT OF PESTAGUA around 1750.  The Count was then Mayor of Cartagena by design of the King. In 1769. He lived for many years in this house enjoying the privileges that the Crown granted him: buying and selling slaves, importing wheat flour, tobacco and selling liquor, as he shared with the Marquis of Valdehoyos the property of the Alembic.
The first floor  of the was used for servants, slaves and stables. In the entrance courtyard is still the large cistern where the rainwater that the roofs collected was stored, since Cartagena did not have an aqueduct and this house supplied the precious liquid to the neighboring houses that the Count built later. The imposing stairs lead to the second floor where the Count and his family's rooms were located and the great Ballroom and Meetings Hall, with rich craftsmanship on the ceiling, a typical element of Cartagena's architecture. It has been the home of important people.
