    Excellent cultural experience in the Capital of Chile. It is a beautiful Palace full of history. Visits are guided by very prepared people. The place cleaning cares by covers placed over shoes. Not can take photos in the interior of the Palace which gives greater attention when they expose the guides and it is not impaired by visiting people. Objects and spaces are very well kept, most of the things are authentic ones on the first floor. Excellent panorama to visit alone or with friends and family with older children. The travel time is maximum 1 hour and a half. Good thing is that if you arrive late one joins the group with a guided and at the end joins the other group coming back without losing any corner of the Palace.
