A private social club at Lima's Plaza de Armas!
Oct 2019
At Lima's "Plaza de Armas" (also known as "Plaza Mayor"), the very heart of its historical center, you will find many outstanding buildings. "Palacio de la Unión" is one of them! Built in 1942, in the Spanish-Peruvian neocolonial style, it has awesome wood balconies facing the green lawns and manicured gardens of the square. It belongs to a private social club - "Club de la Unión" - and is not opened to visitors, unless invited by one of its associates. Take your time and stroll along "Palacio de la Unión" and the other famous buildings at "Plaza de Armas", such as the "Palacio de Gobierno", "Palacio Municipal de Lima", "Palacio Arzobispal", "Parroquia del Sagrario" and the unforgettable "Catedral de Lima", all part of the "Centro Historico de Lima", a Unesco appointed, since 1988, "World Heritage Site"! Enjoy!

Remarkable architecture
Sep 2017 • Couples
Palacio de la Union is located in Plaza Mayor and one of the fine examples of Peruvian architecture with the colorful exterior design and symbolic wooden balconies which reflect another traiditonal architectural style from the capital. With the combination of other buildings surrounds the plaza the place is on top-10 to do list for Lima.

More amazing architecture
Apr 2017 • Couples
This historical building is home to The Club de la Unión, a non-profit Peruvian civil association which was founded in 1868. This building, constructed in the colonial style prevalent around the Plaza de Armas, was inaugurated in 1942 and is now included in the UNESCO listing of the heritage area. Beautiful architectural detail with ornate balconies.
We enjoyed a brief history outline from our guide as we strolled past.
