About
Several sources have written that El Palacio de la Real Intendencia, Puerto Rico's former Department of Treasure, is one of the most beautiful examples of Neoclassical architecture in Puerto Rico. Situated on the westernmost side of Plaza de Armas, this building is comprised of three levels: the first level is identifiable by the bossage, which cleverly heightens the second level by differentiating it so starkly; the second level is marked by the fluted pilasters and the doors with balconies that overlook the plaza; finally, the third level has the smaller two-paned windows, which gracefully flow with the pilaster/bay pattern that adorn the building. From 1852 to 1969 the Palacio de la Real Intendencia served as the Department of Treasure; nowadays, however, it houses the Department of State. Inside, you can appreciate its gallery-like composition: a patio resides at the center of the structure and offices surrounding it. Also, don't miss the stone well that sits on the patio!
