  • This museum is small and does not have much to do, however it is an interesting stop in the surroundings of Plaza de Armas for a tourist with time to spare.

  • Without a doubt, an excellent place to learn about both the culture and the Chilean architecture. The Red House delivers the posibility to soak up the way of life of the era and the history of the founding of Santiago. Noteworthy is that the Casa Colorada is located in the center of the Center, so that access to it is very easy and comfortable.

  • 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.
