The grounds and building are open to the public (free admission). I really enjoyed the historical significance of Casa de Juntas. The building contains beautiful art work - paintings, stained glass and lovely wood working.

Having read about this place, I made it a point not to miss it. The building itself has one medium sized hall which is used as a kind of parliament with seats set in escalating opposing rows forming a nice oval. Very richly decorative. However,...More
