Casa Garcilaso, Cusco

4.1
#15 of 25 in Museums in Cusco
Learn about the prehispanic Peruvian people of the Inca empire at Casa Garcilaso. This small but charming historical museum displays a number of period items, from cookery pots and water jugs to Incan weaponry. Check out the multimedia presentations on their history, as well as a room dedicated to colonial artworks from the era. The building itself dates back to the 16th century, as evidenced by its Andalusian-style architecture. Restoration has kept it going after three different earthquakes in its long history.

  • The House of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega is a museum with very good presentation and documentation. A not to be missed visit in Cuzco.

  • Front Plaza Regocijo, was the House of garcilaso Inca de la Vega, who wrote all the history of the Incas told by his grandfather. Excellent in terms of pre inca, inca and colonial material. Included in the tourist voucher, if they don't not sell them tickets to see it.
