  • 35 years ago I visited the Palace, is part of our history and should be part of the school curriculum your visit, guided tours are made with knowledge, love and passion. The building is lacking maintenance, but beyond that its written historical regencies and new video information system we nourish great information. A detail, get is difficult if you don't have gps, because lacking the road signs indicating well where bend. Impossible to visit this beautiful place, there's a kiosk and toilets in excellent condition along with a beautiful grove to enjoy our beautiful province of Entre Rios.

  • It is a must-see place for the importance of Urquiza in our history. It is a true Palace, well preserved and with abundant information if you wish to travel on their own. If not, there are guided tours every hour. It is worth stopping in detail in the room where he was murdered. Not charged entry, only calls for a partnership at will. The place has parking and restrooms, and is accessed by a path paved in good condition.

  • This palace was the house of Justo José de Urquiza. One of the most powerful men of the XIX century from the area where Argentina was established. There you can go throughout the building and know all about his life, try to be there at 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 hours for a guided visit (it is free and only in Spanish) The place is amazing due its history, so do not avoid the guide tour. Try to read the book "Palacio de la memoria" before to go, due that the building is full of secret symbols. Up. Conservation of the building and garden, very helpful guide tour, free entrance and parking. Down. Restroom is not so clean.
  • I enjoyed my visit to Palacio San Jose. The structure is very well maintained and the guide provided very good info. It is really worth it to deviate from the highway and visit this place.-
