If old stuff thrills you, this will give you goosebumps. The house is 500 years old, and some say it's the oldest home in Latin America. Metre-thick walls, carved ceilings, and a sense of solidity and dignity that give you an idea of the wealth and power of the Spanish empire in that era. (We were interested to learn that a "new" extension was built about 200 years later. When Hurricane Sandy arrived a couple of years ago, it blew down a lot of buildings in Santiago, including the new wing: but the original 16th-century building survived unscathed!)
