This "Castle" is part of very interesting history of Sucre and Bolivia in general. Sucre has so much history, and it is very well presented, explained and well worth visiting. So this castle was a big disappointment. It was built by an extremely wealthy couple...More

Actually the visit is NOT worth it, you just pay to enter into an empty and abandoned building, there are not any guide to explain the history of it, nor any literature around the place.
