  • This building located in an exclusive square and surrounded by avenues is a construction of less than 100 years rather monotonous and clad in marble. It has no special attraction for the tourist who goes without particular interests to visit the city. However, there are guided tours for those who have an interest in these types of institutions and have architectural value from now on. Other than that, you'd better aim for the Rambla. Not even the photo.

  • We made the guided tour (can be done in Portuguese), which cost 90 pesos. It is worth to know the palace inside, very beautiful environments.
