La Sirena

La Sirena is a house that survives in the heart of the peninsula of Paraguaná in Venezuela. Builded at the end of the XIX century by Lulio Sierralta, its saloons, courtyards, chambers and rooms, guard the lifestyle of a village that forgot its history by misunderstanding the progress offered by the oil company. The Peña family preserves this house just like the first owners designed it, making it one of the few houses still standing in Paraguaná. The other ones where abandoned by its inhabitants, deteriorated by the neighbours theft and forgotten by the public politics of a governments that underestimates their historic and cultural value.
