Fodor's Review

This mansion sums up the graceful style of the early 18th century. Flanked by a pair of elegant balconies, the stone entrance is as expertly carved as that of any of the city's churches. Casa Torre Tagle currently holds offices of the Foreign Ministry and is open to the public only on weekends, when you can check out the tiled ceilings and carved columns of the ground floor and see a 16th-century carriage. Across the street is Casa Goyeneche, which was built some

40 years later in 1771, and was clearly influenced by the rococo movement.

It would be beautiful if it were somewhere else

No doubt the architecture is to be admired, but the setting makes it difficult to admire it--a narrow, busy, dirty street, surrounded by unremarkable buildings.
