Palacio de la Alhambra - Historical Building Santiago - Chile

Palacio de la Alhambra is a Moorish-style palace designed and built by Manuel Aldunate between 1860 and 1862. Like most of Santiago’s architecture from this period, it was heavily influenced by European style. In this case, the original Palacio de la Alhambra in Granada provided inspiration, right down to the complete replica of the lion water fountain.


The palace was at various times used as a family home and a fortress, but is currently the headquarters of the National Society of Fine Arts. It was declared a national monument in 1973 and hosts regular fine art exhibitions.
