Government Building Architectural Building
One of South America's most magnificent buildings, Palacio de Torre Tagle shows off the grand colonial architectural stylings of the early 18th century. The palace was built in 1730 by treasurer of the Royal Spanish Fleet, José B. Tagle, whose coat of arms remains above the door to this day. Pay special attention to the intricately carved wooden balconies on the patios. The Peruvian foreign ministry now operates out of this venerable building.
