This canary yellow 19th-century mansion is unmistakable and impossible to ignore unless you’re color blind. Built in neoclassical style, it has beautiful window gratings, 36 slender interior columns and gold moldings on the ceilings. General Juan Manuel Iturregui lived here after he famously proclaimed independence. Today, it’s a private social club, so visits are restricted. You can pop into the interior courtyard any time of day but visiting the ornate rooms is restricted to the listed opening hours.
