  • Well worth a visit to see the great chandelier and the eternal flame guarded by immaculately dressed guards. No limitations on photographs.  more »
  • A stop on your tour through the colonial area. The central chandelier is beautiful and every corner of this monument is steeped in history. Although the support of the guide is worth, it is not free and they require you tip in a little friendly way.
