La Mansion del Fundador, Arequipa

4.0
Admire the architecture of La Mansion del Fundador, a colonial estate with well-preserved buildings and restored interiors. Originally a residence of Arequipa's founder, Garci Manuel de Carbajal, the property was acquired by a congregation of Jesuits, who built many of the structures seen today, including terraces and chapels. In the late 18th century, the site became the home of Don Juan Crisostomo de Goyoneche y Aguerreverre, a Spanish nobleman and trader. During this period, the site gained many of the domestic features seen today. With artifacts arranged in situ across the complex's many rooms, the site offers a perspective on how the upper echelons of society lived during the colonial era.

  • Re-fuel in the city of Arequipa, to learn about architecture and décor of the time. A fun place

  • The site is part of the vast majority of the "City Tour". It is worth to be visited because it is well maintained and has an interesting history. In a campaign environment, it makes him forget the perpetual movement of the city of Arequipa 

  • I was inside the tour that we pay, it is a normal attraction, a large House, with furniture and paintings to see, would not pay for entering it.
