Palacio Portales, Cochabamba
(4.9/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at Palacio Portales, a superb luxurious mansion displaying an eclectic mix of architectural styles, constructed from the finest materials around the world. The grand golden yellow and white façade glows among the lush green garden that surrounds the building. The mansion's interior features Carrara marble, French wood, Italian tapestries, and delicate silks. Simón Patiño originally owned the building, an industrialist who controlled the tin industry and who was at the time one of the wealthiest people in the world. Tours of the mansion feature in both Spanish and English. Plan to see Palacio Portales and other attractions that appeal to you using our Cochabamba travel itinerary maker.
