"Former Presidential Offices"

The best national artists, including Alfredo Galvez Suarez, Julio Urruela, Rodolfo Galiotti Torres and Carlos Rigalt, participated in the construction of this building, commissioned by General Jorge Ubico between 1936 and 1943. Located on the north side of Plaza Mayor, the palace was built in an eclectic style, blending Renaissance, neo-Classical and Baroque architecture. Two stone columns flank the main entrance of the elegant building, and paved roads encompass the spot it stands on. Until a few years ago, this was where the presidential offices were situated. Today it functions as an art gallery displaying Guatemalan paintings. Groups can arrange guided tours and learn more about the history of this magnificent building. Incidentally, the palace's drawing room contains the exact center of Guatemala, called Kilometer Cero.
