  • In contrast to the Palacio Sara Braun, the entry in the Centro Cultural Brown Menéndez is free of charge. The living room and staterooms are very well restored and give a good picture of living and life culture of very rich families. Worth a visit. We were amazed how that have exported rich in the European style and the interiors in the deepest South of South America. It is believed to be - in a villa in Europe and not in the vicinity of the Antarctic.

  • A tour by the last, since is appreciated the style of life of makes a couple of centuries in which was the housing of an of them families more influential of the area. The entrance is released, only closed on Tuesdays, but you can visit all year round. In addition, its location next to plaza Muñoz Gamero makes it an almost obligatory stop for tourists.
