For 3 Euros we had an English speaking guide. Well worth it. She told us all about the history of the island and the government. Tour took less than 1 hour.

We went with a guide, Marina. She knew so much of the history of the paintings and pieces in the palace.

We had a very short time to visit this museum/functioning government building before catching a flight. The staff was very accommodating and I'm very glad we went. Beautiful interiors and interesting history.

This is a beautiful building with some incredible history that we learned through our great guide Felipa. She was very helpful in helping us understand the history. The gardens in the back were lovely to rest in after the tour.
