Adams Family Residence

If there's a worse example of DIY architecture in Antigua and its environs, I'm yet to find it!

This house in San Bartolo with its bizarre Hellenistic details is obviously one that the consejo has somehow managed to overlook. The statues on pedestals are a particularly un-fetching feature and the cupulas are doubly pointless in that there is nothing beneath them and they have been surrounded by particularly nasty classical-effect barrandales.
