In this case, "palace" is quite appropriate because it refers to a mansion that, in its time, was considered the largest and most luxurious one in the country. In it, the Presidents of Venezuela have performed their duties since 1911. However, its original builder, President Joaquin Crespo, never occupied or made use of it. The amassing of priceless works of art as time passed has made Miraflores the showcase of national treasures including: furniture, murals, and the works of classic Venezuelan painters such as Arturo Michelena, Cristobal Mendoza, Martín Tovar y Tovar and Tito Salas.
