A great walk from our hotel below! What a beautiful location! Pretty strenuous going uphill, so be prepared.
It is not always possible to actually visit the palace directly but it is an impressive sight from in front of the palace at its front entrance. It is used by the President of Chile when the president is in the Valparaiso area.
Hidden behind the trees and the high-rising flats is an European castle like structure with a Chilian flag fluttering over it. This is what I saw from the Peru Avenue and this I was told was the Palacio Presidencial or the President's summer home. The tour guide has only this much to offer and we go nowhere near the mansion.
They are just a block away, anyway. It's just a modern structure that was meant to look like a castle, but it's dissproporcionated, ugly, and there's nothing to show.
The band was worth the stop. Entertaining music and it was a different changing of the guard to what we have seen in other cities. Well worth the visit.
First, people often think the Presidential Palace is the castle-like grey palace on top of a hillis. Wrong, this one belongs to the police. The Presidential Palace looks like a big mansion from the south of France. Second, it is hidden behind the trees and can only be seen from one spot. Third, you cannot et close from it. But... More
perched on top of the hills in front of the sheraton more or less. beautiful mansion. fit for a queen ...or a president.no to be missed. climb up or take a cab
This is the president's "summer house", you can appreciate it while walking in the "avenida peru". it's a nice place, but i'm not sure if you can visit. It's up the castillo hill. "cerro Castillo"
