The Palacio De Gobierno is the home of the Peruvian president. It is a relatively new building built in 1937 in the style of French Baroque architecture. Formerly the site was the home of Francisco Pizzaro. Everyday around noon there is an elaborate changing of the guard at the palace. Folks line up for over an hour to see the impressive event. Entrance into the palace is free even though there are armed guards posted to the sides of the palace. We did not get an opportunity to visit the inside of the palace because of the changing of the guard ceremony going on at about the same time.
