Introduction

The building which had previously housed "La Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País" had to be demolished as a result of severe damage incurred during an earthquake in 1917. Work on the new government building already commenced in 1926. This neo-classicist-style edifice with its 18 Ionic pillars cast in reinforced concrete is characterised by its dedication to minute detail.
