  • Is beautiful, a sign of life from the middle of the 19th century, very well maintained, is super nostalgic and not stop dd marvel at the size of the place, for lovers of culture and life of yesteryear. Extensive gardens and artificial lake make it precious for the afternoon. And above it is free. Super recommended.

  • The Palace is a sample architecture of power between rivers and the Interior of the country, which was defeated by Buenos Aires and liberal elite in the mid-19th century. From this House (virtual House of Government) is sent with post and vapors to a huge number of offices public and private of the Urquiza family enterprises. The degree of technological advance in the House at all sample orders as this "barbarism" of the interior was filled with elements from all over the world and as Europeanization was not a single phenomenon of Buenos Aires. Saying this, the House is intact, arrested in the time since the murder of the Governor Urquiza fatidica, in April 1870. Traces of that fact in the room where he was killed are saved. There are visits at night that are very well, with actors dressed time. It is worth

  • Excellent place, dedicated to the visitor guides. Too bad the lack of national support for their preservation, may not have income at will. National parks charge $120 per person!

  • Excellent historical milestone!!!!
  • Very nice place for its history and architectural heritage. Not so well kept. The guides are interesting but there is a lady at the door instead of advise ask you a contribution. Need more willingness of staff. Moreover, safety pin if they are walking in the area.

  • Beautiful place. Only critical placement of many of the explanatory posters. They are far away or crooked. Would need to be closer to the people.

  • The palacio San José, Museum and monument historic national just José de Urquiza. Very nice Museum and part of the history of Argentina. This excellently preserved, both the Palace such as gardens and parks. There are guided tours. This good as for travel at any time, but a recommended option, if one is comes from Buenos Aires towards some of the baths, book a visit to the Palace for the last day, and go through there on the way back.

  • Historical place worth visiting. It was the home of the Gral. Just José of Urquiza, caudillo of Entre Ríos. An artificial lake constructed himself and the first House to have electricity in the area.
