  • Really beautiful gardens. Tour in Spanish/English/French included in entry price of 20bovs. House itself is fine. Gardens are the gorgeous part!
  • It's a beautiful place to visit. I love the interior, too bad you can't take photos of the interior
  • It is a beautiful piece of time, that time where the King of Tin among the world's richest men, was a Bolivian, Simon I. Patiño. Lovely place, recommend it 100% when they visit in Cochabamba, "La Llajta" 👍🏼😊
