This was my favorite attraction in all of Santiago. The palace is sort of in a bad neighborhood, but don't let that prevent you from visiting. We walked here all the way from Cerro Santa Lucia and felt perfectly safe, and it was truly worth...More

Toured the inside of this fascinating building this morning. Was very impressed with the restoration work: such opulent, beautiful interiors showing the wealth of Chile's past. A well needed window into the fascinating heritage this country has and is in sore need of better care:...More

Even though we could only wander through the gardens of the palace since the building is being repaired because of 2010's earthquake, the palace does not lose it charm. The gardens are impressive, you can find the two iron lions that used to look at...More

Still closed for renovation- no access to interior and the gate was closed (it was Saturday) so we couldn't explore the exterior either. The English website doesn't mention the closure. (Rating does not reflect the actual attraction)

Located at Calle Dieciocho/Santa Isabel. As of April 2014, interior was closed for renovations, but the outside can still be viewed (free admission) on weekdays to get a sense of the opulence of a bygone era.

this was our second attempt in 2 years to visit. it is still closed with no opening date in the near future, probably for years. supposedly the garden is open Monday-Friday only, but we were there on a Saturday. Spectacular building, awful neighborhood.

I don't know if this place deserves to be called a "palace", but it is very beautiful, and definitely deserves a visit. There's such good taste in the details, like the big mirror (its location looks so modern!), mosaic marble floor, painting from local artists,...More

Spanish and English tours available. Must wear shoe covers to visit the house and it is overwhelming to see what people could live in (if you had money) as compared to the rest of the citizens. It was the first house to have central heating/cooling...More
