The Borgellá Palace is located in one of the most important streets of the Colonial City. It is a 16th century house owned by the colonizer Diego de Herrera; it was later bought by the Haitian governor Gerónimo Borgella who used it as a residence and, later on, was refurbished into the Government Palace, working as such between 1822 and 1844 and with a structure that still survives to this day.

Since its restoration in the 19th century, the building has played different roles along the years; among many other, it was headquarters of the Government Palace and the Senate of the Republic, and it also has worked as Royal Court, Court of Justice and some other government institutions.
