Palacio Vistalegre Reviews
Huge circular venue - we came for a rock concert - the seats are far from the stage and cold (it was January), but large standing space. more »
Absolutely horrifying. Expensive beer (watered down), cold and hard seats. NO RE-ENTRY. Avoid at all cost. Had some good guacamole but it was frozen. more »
The concert was amazing!! Because of the group we had an amazing time. The building is very nice but the staff of the palacio was not helpful. I asked them where is puerta 17 and they said they don't know.. that was ridiculous!
Awesome venue best place to see slayer both my partner and I have been too and he has been to loads.
