Save the Children renting in Casa Sueca

Built in 1938, the palatial villa was purchased by the Swedish National Board of Public Buildings in 1940 as the Ambassador's residence. Remodelling was carried out in 1956, to a design by J Fussing. The property continued to serve as the Ambassador's residence for another 60 years, until spring 2001 when the Embassy of Sweden was closed down. The National Property Board Sweden (SFV) decided to keep the building, and it is now rented out to the aid organisation Save the Children. As one of only a few properties in the area that are not of a more modern style, the villa in San Isidro is a cultural treasure worth preserving.
