This house was originally built in the 18th century by the Marquess of San Clemente for her daughter. In the 19th century it was turned into a post office.

In the late 1880’s mining engineer, Tadeo Fulgencío Mejía, bought the building and turned it back into a home.

During a home invasion incident Tadeo’s wife – Constanza de la Rivera - was killed from a knife wound in the neck. Rumour says it was employees of the mine who blamed Tadeo for a decrease in work and wages. In actual fact it had nothing to do with him.

Tadeo is said to have had a psychotic break due to his wife’s murder. He became obsessed with finding a way to talk to her from beyond the grave.

To further this end, he visited a witch who taught him how to communicate with his wife through human sacrifice. Other versions of the story say the witch taught him ways to bring his wife back from the dead by murdering others.

It is unknown how many people Tadeo killed but multiple remains were found in his basement when his house was entered after he killed himself trying some new experiment. When his black magick experiments were complete Tadeo burned the majority of the remains.

The house is now a tourist trap museum. Apparently, people can see photos of Tadeo surrounded by skulls and other macabre artifacts and some 19th century pottery.


Paranormal Activity

Some say the ghost of Tadeo himself roams the house still paying for his terrible crimes in the afterlife.

The apparitions of Tadeo’s many victims are seen wandering throughout the house.

The phantom sound of someone running across the house in high heels is often reported.

Cold spots which move through the house is also a common level of paranormal activity as is a variety of unexplained sounds.

Disembodied blood curling loud screams have been heard both in the house and by those outside of the house.
