  • Not be if it is something cultural or that, but for me the museums must be open on Sunday, if people are working from Monday to Friday in the best of cases, only have the weekend to visit them. For me surprise some people in the world do not think in the same way; and Yes, this closed.

  • It is an old building, located in downtown Santiago, which takes its name for having red coloring. That color, in the colonial period, was obtained by mixing the blood of oxen at cal was on cover of the houses. In places runs a colonial Museum.

  • The Casa Colorada is a relic of history, a real witness of important facts which so far stands as a bulwark for the Chileans. It is clean, uncluttered and well maintained and is definitely worth visiting it. Stillness inside, silence, pleasant temperature and a myriad of details that invite you to remember, perhaps for Chilean history lovers have a special flavor your visit, and is that the details will help rebuild that needed imagery of our past .

  • 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
