This is so named because in the corridor of the upper story of the building is a huge polychrome sculpture of the figure of a soldier. The significance of this figure and why it was placed here are unknown. However it is certain that whoever constructed this mansion was a person with good taste and good humor to have decorated the house with such an artistic but useless figure. The beautiful, manorial design and elegant Corinthian style in the rest of its architecture, as well as its well-preserved state, make this one one of the most beautiful colonial jewels of the city. The Baron of Humboldt stayed here in the 18th century, on his way to the recently born volcano Jorullo.
