Casa Museo Catherwood
English explorer and draftsman Frederick Catherwood and American adventurer John Lloyd Stephens were the first foreigners to rediscover Copán and numerous other Maya cities. Catherwood's extraordinary lithographs, on view at the Catherwood House Museum, portray those monuments as they appeared when the pair first saw them; the museum’s belle époque setting transports visitors to Catherwood’s day and conjures the wonder he experienced as he wandered Maya Mexico. A coffee enjoyed in the museum courtyard and a poke through its elegant gift shop are icing on the cake.
