Casa Garcilaso, Cusco

(3.9/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A site where one can find out or learn more about the history of Garcilazo, a key character in the stories of the incas. In this House one finds lots of interesting things and can learn more about the incas recommended.

  • Not to be missed! Old House of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, son of an inca Princess and a Spanish colonist. Mestizo born in Cusco, already during the Spanish and colocaniuzação after the death of his father, as an adult went to Spain to plead a recognition of the services rendered by the father in the colony. Was a man torn between the Inca and Spanish legacy of your father, wrote his memoirs, the wonders of the Royal palaces of the Inca Empire in a unique way.

  • All sample is pretty well organized and pieces give you a good idea of the history of Cusco, from the origins of prehistoric, passing through the section inca and colonial; Maybe miss a little more space to display all parts or you can select the best exposure. For the rest, it is beautiful!

  • Get your Machu Picchu tickets here if you had any difficulty booking online. Unlikely you'll get Huyana Picchu tickets if you're already in Cusco though.
  • Beautiful Museum
