  • 就在市中心最主要的精華區武器廣場附近,如果有來市中心一定會經過,那種屬於順道一遊的景點,在充滿觀光氣息的武器廣場之外,我覺得他算是比較特別的,尤其以建築的觀點來看,充滿特色的一棟建築,但你只能才外面觀看了,因為裡面是不開放的。

  • The Casa Colorada owes its name to that in 1888, the façade was covered with a natural red dye. The distinguished owner "conquest Conde don Mateo de Toro y Zambrano" ordered its construction in 1769 the Portuguese master Joseph de la Vega. 10 years it delayed its construction and its structure broke with architectural era cannons, since it was the first House of two floors which in its facade of brick on the ground floor, covered it stones

  • Important place, should hurry in the works for its total opening to the public and tourists. It is an important focus of the historical heritage of Chile.
