Long Description:
Torino Hotel was founded in 1917. It's located literally around the corner from the main square of the city where the presidential palace lies.

The building was originally constructed in 1626 but in the last 400 years it was deeply changed. Since the early 20th century it features a patio where art performances take place and its facade reveals a Republican architecture.

It's the oldest hotel of the country's capital city and it was declared National Monument in 1964.
