We came here and were surprised to find we could go inside. For $3 we were able to walk through the palace and check out the beautiful rooms inside.

It is expensive to maintain an historical building like this, and lack of expenditure was obvious. A visit here provides a lot of historical perspective. Other than the plaza and Cathedral there is not much else to see walking around this area.

8-4pm M-F according to website. Does not close at noon -- would be a nice place to sit and rest out of the midday sun. Don't know the price of admission but is is not much by U.S. standards -- maybe $3?
