La Glorieta Castle, Sucre

(75+ reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • Badly preserved, not is this restored, walls painted, gardens careless and however is a place that has much history, a penalty, the entrance is charged, goes much people could be best. Is away of the city, is takes the micro 4 of the square that you leads to the door. Bring water there are no shops nearby. Respect the limits, do not paint the walls, not littering
