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 place is nice, however, foreigners pay 20 bolivianos. The day I was there was no guide and many rooms were closed and without the Prince objects in charts or something. Event expendable!

  • The visitation introduces errors in practice with what is presented in the tourist brochures, and because of this, unfortunately I found the site closed in my visit. Even so, the architecture is amazing and worth the ride anyway.

  • 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
