  • The cousino Palace was the residence of the Cousiño goyenechea family, one of most wealthy country, in this place you can admire them as these families lived, this Palace has impressive rooms for every occasion, furniture with sheets of gold and paintings exclusive, when entering you pass slippers to avoid damaging the floor, it is something that is not on the other side, that shows the importance that is this place for Santiago, its value is 3000 pesos I think something very cheap so you can enjoy a different evening next to your f family or friends.

  • Luxurious Palace, is a real shame that you ignite years ago on the top floor, because that is really notorious restoration that isn't at the height of the building. However, it is really huge. The day of heritage I recommend visiting it. P.S. The bad thing is that she is can not take pictures, you know that you can, but you should not.

  • Admission is $3000 and is close to the metro. The tour lasts around 1 hour or 1.30 hrs. Pictures inside, only in the outdoor gardens is can not take. The Palace is beautiful, both the furniture and architecture, including the arts, tableware, etc. The tour is guided and group, the guide is very familiar with the House and the history of its inhabitants. Everything very clean, good service and can leave your valuables without discomfort. Recommended!

  • The group for the guided tour was too big, but the place and its history was good.
  • Living the past. Adorable.
  • Classic architecture and two beautiful paintings
  • Super
  • A good place if you want to know how was the rich people of 18th century, is a beautiful place, where a tourist guide who will explain how it was that family at the time, is forbidden to take photos (only on the outside can take photos), or touching objects and pass them one slippers to avoid damaging the floor, I recommend going if you like history
