Please check the schedule before going there. Aparently you can get in with the guided tour, and english tour is very rare. You cant just walk in and sometime you have to wait for hours for the next avaialble tour.

We visited the palace/chamber of commerce accidentally as we passed by. You can only take guided tours, but this was really good. The history, decoration and richness make this place really worthwhile to visit.

The Palacio has been many things throughout history and is very well perserved. The detailed architecture is evident throughout.
