Casa de Nariño

A couple of blocks south of Plaza de Bolívar, between Cra 7 and 8, is the heavily fortified presidential palace and compound, Casa de Nariño, done in the style of Versailles. This is where President Santos currently lives and works. To take part in a guided visit, book online – look for “Visitas Casa de Nariño” on the website. It’s also possible to watch the ceremonial changing of the guard three times a week – best viewed from the east side of the palace.
