Palacio de Torre Tagle is one of the most famous landmarks of the medieval period. The palace was built in the beginning of the 17th century and is considered an amazing example of the baroque style. The palace charms visitors with its elegant design and skillfully selected furnishing. The ground floor of the building is the location of a giant hall that has become a traditional venue for various important events and governmental meetings. Excursions to Raqchi region are traditionally very popular with tourists. During the Incan period a big city was located here, but now tourists can mostly see the ruins and several buildings - a big temple dedicated to Viracocha and several houses. There is a big man-made water reserve near the temple, and the purpose of this reserve is still a mystery.
