While there be little funding for upkeep (understandable), it is not clear why the community made such poor decisions about the surroundings, and why the concessioner decided to provide so little information about the vacant and abandoned villa. You will not learn anything from the...More

The castle is quite impressive and good looking at first glance, but it’s certainly not a must see. The interior has been completely stripped out and graffitied- the place doesn’t seem to been taken care of. Bit of a way out from town centre too....More

The background story to La Glorieta Castle, and seeing how it plays out by visiting the 'castle' is interesting. However, compared to castles you would see in Europe / the UK, this is far from par. The castle is near a military base, so don't...More

Take the local bus (4) from the corner of Arenales and Loa until the end of the line. Costs 1.50 Bolivianos each way. Entry to the grounds and gardens is free. You can go inside but this costs and also extra for a camera. Nice...More

Actually the visit is NOT worth it, you just pay to enter into an empty and abandoned building, there are not any guide to explain the history of it, nor any literature around the place.

This wasn't worth the trip out of town Nor the $20bolivianos to enter (if you want to take photos you need to pay more)

at less than 30 minutes from Sucre center, the castle is a jewel that can be visited with local guide that provide a lot of info about the family and the history of the castle. Nice 2hours excursion from Sucre

We have a saying in Norway, which translates to "nice from afar, but far from nice". I.e. it looks good from a distance, but not when you get up close, which pretty much sums up La Glorieta. The place has so much potential, but all...More

The mansion itself has a wonderful story of a couple who were either A) awarded the title of prince and princess by the Vatican for their work with orphans OR B) bought their titles. It is an eclectic and bizarre combination of classical byzantine, classic...More

Historical castle 20 m away from the city, with a fascinating history and strange mix of all styles. Still in the process of restoration, but very interesting to understand bolivian history
