Some more photos with the Cotroceni Presidential Palace in Bucharest



On Cotroceni Hill, in 1679, Şerban Cantacuzino built a monastery. This was the place where a palace was built by French architect Paul Gottereau for King Carol I of the Romanians in 1888.

In 1977, Nicolae Ceauşescu made the palace a guest house, and the old church of Cantacuzino was demolished in 1985. Since 1991, Cotroceni Palace has been the residence of the Romanian President. The National Cotroceni Museum is open to the public.
(Wikipedia)







Aerial view. In this photo you can see the two courtyards of the palace, the one of the 17th century monastery (left) and the one of the 19th century palace (right).

(Currently undergoing repairs)

And it's probably worth adding pictures of Rundāle palace although it is just a tourist attraction nowadays.

Spain - Moncloa Palace, Madrid (official president residence and office):



Moncloa is more a complex than a palace. They keep it a bit too secretive because of security reasons. You can find many pics of the main entrance, where foreign leaders use to be received, but you won't find many pictures of the interior and surroundings. They even thought on blocking google's street view around the spot. An aerial view:



Spain - Zarzuela Palace, Madrid (Official residence of the King, Chief of State)



* the Zarzuela palace is a relatively small residence which was chosen by the King instead of the larger Palacio Real (Royal palace). Some pics of the Palacio Real were already posted, but i'll just add one:



Some spanish regional president residences:

Basque Country - Ajuria Enea, Vitoria-Gazteiz (Basque "lehendakari" regional president residence and office):



Catalonia - Casa de los Canónigos, Barcelona (Catalonian regional president residence):

Valencia - Fuentehermosa Palace, Valencia (official residence of the Valenncian regional president):

Well, here in Guatemala, in 1919 dictator Manuel Estrada Cabrera wanted to demolish the old Presidential Palace, which had been severely damaged by 1917 earthquakes, and build a new one for the centenary f Guatemala's independency, in 1921. Using that as a perfect excuse, he demolished it and held a "competition" between italian architects Guido Albani and Francisco D'Amico.

This was the winner, Albani's design:



And this, D'Amico's:



Everything was prepared for the construction start, but after Estrada Cabrera was removed from office in 1920, the national assembly decided a new design was required for the centenary celebration. With a very limited budget, they built in three months this horrible wooden building:



Luckily, the "Palacio de Cartón" (Cardboard Palace) as it was called, burned down in 1925. In 1927, president Lázaro Chacón held another competition for a new presidential palace. The competition was won by artist Agustín Iriate, but his work never came to be. Finally, in 1937, another dictator, Jorge Ubico published the basis for the design and construction of the palace and installed its first stone. The new building was finished in January 1943. It was finally opened in November of the same year. This is how it looked back in the day:



And this is how it looks today:
