Fodor's Expert Review Palacio La Alhambra
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
Santiago's Alhambra palace is tiny and sadly rundown, but its two patios—the second with its own Fountain of Lions—and richly decorated hall give an idea of its former splendor. It was built in 1860 by Francisco Ignacio Ossa as his family's town house after he made his fortune in silver mining in the north. This building suffered significant damage during the February 2010 earthquake and, as of this writing, was closed until further notice. Please check to see if the property has opened prior to your visit.
