Palacio Taranco

Palacio Taranco Review

Built in 1908 atop the rubble of Uruguay's first theater, the ornate Taranco Palace, in the Ciudad Vieja, is representative of the French-inspired architecture favored in fin-de-siècle Montevideo. Even the marble for the floors was imported from France. Today you can survey that bygone glory in the palace's new incarnation as the Museo de Artes Decorativas (Museum of Decorative Arts). Its rooms are filled with period furniture, statuary, draperies, clocks, and portrait paintings. A cultural center within has a calendar of performances and live music.
