Many years ago, this palace was a magnificent place and of great importance, but today only a recollection stays of what it was.The palace is located two kilometers from downtown of the little city of San Felipe in the valleys of central Chile. The construction began in 1886 by Arturo Edwards and ended in the year 1916.
From an architectonic point of view it’s a reply in a minor scale of the palace of Versailles, with more than 100 rooms, a swimming pool, a water mirror and 5 hectares of park. Unfortunately the earthquake of 1985 leaves the palace almost in ruins. Nowadays there are remains of the underground, kitchens and the jails.

Throughout the year it's easy to get distracted away from what really matters: friends and family. Remember the most important people in your life this holiday season for a one-off chance to win a special Lomography Hamper, which includes the iconic Lomo LC-A+!
2006 was the year of significant discoveries. Not only Lomography introduced the Lomo LC-A+ with its additional features such as multiple-exposure switch, but NASA revealed photographs taken by Mars Global Surveyor suggesting the presence of liquid water on Mars.
A new year entails a new set of visual fads and aesthetics to dominate the year. Earlier this January, many visual trendsetters reported their predictions in various aspects of contemporary art. It's Lomography's time to forecast for future of analogue photography.
Last month Lomography UK celebrated 25 years of Lomography by building a great big Lomowall on Ganton St, Soho. We launched this on the same week as the Carnaby St Street party and it grabbed a lot of people's attention.
Even today, the country Russia continues to be a mystery to many, despite open borders and its progressive society. The shroud may have remained due to its Soviet past, but esteemed Moscow-based photographer Frank Herfort tries to unveil the country as a portrait for the 21st century.
