World's Most Stunning Presidential Palaces (PHOTOS)
share this story
Presidential palaces are usually one of a city's most impressive aesthetic highlights for both citizens and tourists alike. In cases like Buenos Aires' Casa Rosada, they served as the backdrop for some of their country's most memorable historic events, whereas others, such as the Golden Jubilee House in Accra, Ghana, were inaugurated a mere two years ago.
Contrary to popular belief, many countries do not refer to their president's residences as a presidential palace, often bestowing that regal title to the location of the head of state's executive offices instead.
Whether acting as the seat of the government, the head of state's home or, in some cases, as both, presidential palaces represent a stunning melange of architectural styles, from Baroque to neoclassical to merely modern.
