Palacio de los Capitanes Generales

Highly recommended
Standing on the west side of Plaza de Armas, this 18C palace symbolising the military force of the colonial power and later of the republic's presidency is a fine example of the splendours of the Baroque style. Trees grow in its charming central patio, where stands a marble statue of Christopher Columbus (1862). This impoing building today houses the Museo de la Ciudad dedicated to the city's history, an epic tale which is here richly illustrated.
