Casa de Aliaga, Lima

(4.4/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Step back in time and explore the oldest house in Peru at Casa de Aliaga. The colonial-era mansion was given to Geronimo de Aliaga by Francisco Pizarro when he founded Lima in 1535. Since then, 17 generations of the Aliaga family have lived there and continue to reside at the building's modern annex. Admire different architectural styles, furniture designs, and interesting items from various periods of the house's history. In the blue-tiled salon, for example, you can view the sword Captain Aliaga brought to the New World. Arrange your visit to Casa de Aliaga and discover more family-friendly attractions in Lima using our Lima vacation planner.

  • The place was amazing. Quite literally a mansion within busy downtown Lima. I will say that PEN$120 (USD ~$9) is excessive for a tour that lasts not even 30 minutes. I was hoping we would have the ability to do self-guided tours or at least revisit the rooms in the mansion (again, beautiful) to make the most of the steep price.
  • I get a very Dutch or German feeling from this building. It's quite hard to find but worth the look
  • Nice views
  • Only seen from outside

  • The House is beautiful, worthy to be seen, as well as being an example very clear of the luxury and glamour of the city of Lima in the best of times.
