Close to the cathedral is this summer former mansion with beautiful gardens which built the rich miner of Taxco, Jose de la Borda, fond of the study of botany and horticulture, he gathered at the site several species of plants within the framework of French-style architecture. It has a church nearby that was also built before 1778. The work on the Jardin Borda (Garden Borda) including its interior lake was completed in 1783. The place became famous, besides their gardens, for the books and articles that visitors who stayed in it wrote about the same. It was as a summer residence for emperors Maximiliano and Carlota Amalia who selected the site for its beauty. In the "Juarez Section" is recreated the ancient environment of the building and here is the Musum of the sit which has furniture and clothes of the eighteenth century and copies of documents of the Empire.
