✯ Palacio de Gobierno

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Tucumán Government Palace is the executive office building of the Government of the Province of Tucumán. Tucumán Province, the most populous and economically important in the Argentine Northwest, lacked architecturally significant government offices, early in the 20th Century. As both a remedy to that absence and a means to encourage unban renewal and development in the provincial capital city of San Miguel de Tucumán, the Governor, Luis F. Nougués, organized the construction of a government palace to replace the colonial cabildo then still serving as his offices. The cabildo housed not only the governor's offices; but also a courtroom and small jail--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------La Casa de Gobierno de Tucumán es un monumento histórico nacional y sede del gobierno provincial de Tucumán, en la ciudad de San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina.

A comienzos del siglo XX, la provincia de Tucumán carecía de edificios de importancia, siendo la más poblada y poderosa en el noroeste argentino. Para remediar esa falta y para impulsar la renovación urbana y el desarrollo en la ciudad de San Miguel, el Gobernador Luis Nougués impilsó la construcción de un palacio de gobierno que reemplazara al cabildo de los tiempos coloniales, que era todavía utilizado como sede de la administración provincial. Además, alojaba la casa de justicia y una pequeña cárcel.

El Gobernador encargó al arquitecto tucumano Domingo Selva el diseño, para el cual se eligió una combinación ecléctica de barroco francés con toques italianizantes y algunos adornos art nouveau. Luego de la demolición del Cabildo, se adquirieron las dos propiedades vecinas, y la construcción comenzó en 1908. El nuevo edificio fue inaugurado el 9 de julio de 1912 por el Gobernador José Frías Silva y el Presidente Roque Sáenz Peña, aunque comenzó a habilitarse dos años antes-
