The Gilded House dates back to 1930, when it was one of several properties owned by the wealthy Tarija landowner Moisés Navajas (often described as Bolivia’s Teddy Roosevelt) and his wife, Esperanza Morales. The building appears imposing and impressive on tourist brochures, but in reality the exterior is sloppily splashed with gold and silver paint, and the roof is topped with a row of liberating angels.
