Casa de Francia

Many great men have passed through Casa de Francia. While today it is the embassy for France, it was once a boarding house where Spaniards on their way to the American mainland would rest and prepare. Men like Cortez and conquistadors would embark from here to conquer new lands, establish new colonies, and shape the future of the New World.
