- This palace was built in the early 18th century by Don José Tagle and Brachio, for domestic use. The main facade is made from stone in the first wing and plaster in the second. The style is Sevillian baroque with a strong Arabic influence. The materials used in its construction were brought from Spain, Panama and Central America. It has carved columns and finely worked balconies in dark wood, imitating colonial buildings. These balconies or miradors adapt the architecture to local tradition. It has Sevillian tiles, plasterwork, wooden columns and lobed arches. Currently, it functions as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Visits can be made by appointment only at the office of 'Imagen Institucional del organismo público'.
