It is ideal to do it with the guides in the place and if you are in January and February or Easter Friday will be surprised because at night the Palace comes to life and it is possible to meet with a group of actors who embody the sons and daughters of Urquiza and narrate their life in first person. A wonderful experience and safety pin. the place has a large dining room and very well-maintained bathrooms.
