La Glorieta Castle, Sucre
(1.7/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
See the eclectic European-inspired architecture of La Glorieta Castle, the former home of Don Francisco de Argandona and his wife Clotilde. The couple returned from a tour of the Continent and commissioned a castle that combines elements of the designs they saw there. Architect Antonio Camponovo mixed Gothic, Baroque, Rococo, Byzantine, and Manierista in this 19th-century structure. The reddish-pinkish hue of the building lends the place a fairy-tale feel. Note that the decorative interiors are fairly empty of furniture, so you'll need to use your imagination. Stroll the open (if unkempt) grounds, and climb one of the castle's towers for views of the nearby military base. Put La Glorieta Castle on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sucre trip itinerary planner.

  • The castle is empty. Half of the rooms are closed. Frankly as long as it stays like that, there little interest and 20 Bob for that, it's a beautiful arnarque

  • The glorieta Castle has schedule and at a cost of $20bs + $10bs to take pictures (not paying that, same photos can be removed) is very nice to get to know the history of the aristocracy of sucre. The bus line 4 which goes through the corner of the market takes you direct, is impossible to Miss

  • We have a saying in Norway, which translates to "nice from afar, but far from nice". I.e. it looks good from a distance, but not when you get up close, which pretty much sums up La Glorieta. The place...  more »
