On one of my long walks I passed through Roma once again, and here is a selection of photos that I took of the many fine, old buildings which still stand in the neighborhood.
I remembered that I had read about one of the buildings facing the plaza and I sought it out to take a picture. This large apartment house built in 1908 is officially known as the Rio de Janeiro Building. However, it is commonly referred to as "La Casa de las Brujas" (The House of the Witches).
A more mundane story is that the building got its name because the corner tower looks like the face of a witch wearing her pointed hat.
