Casa de Aliaga, Lima

4.3
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.

  • I found the information about the Casa de Aliaga here on Trip Advisor, so decided to book a tour. We were given a list of English speaking guides from the website of the house, and we chose HildaYancc...  more »
  • I think it is one of the older colonial architectural wonders around the world. The smell of wood, the light that illuminates the room, the building itself makes that you transfer to the colonial era of the Peru. I think it is a must see since it represents part of the history of the country. Eye, told some people that in the spirit of Jerónimo de Aliaga mora House, and the truth is that we could hear steps behind us and a Canadian woman who was with us on the visit said that they had touched her hair. In short, apart mystery I think that it is one of the places to visit in Peru, forced by its colonial beauty and history that surrounds it (despite the fear with the so-called spirit)

  • We visited this as part of an organized private tour of Lima, it is a house from the very early years (after the founding) of Lima and has been in the Aliaga family for 16 generations. Beautiful rooms...  more »

  • Amazing old house. The oldest house in Lima!
  • A private home, about 35%of which is viewable, which has been in the same family since the Conquest. Beautiful furniture and artwork, really worth visiting.
  • 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.
  • Nice and very old house!!
  • Very interesting and beautiful home, still occupied by the defendants of the original family from the 1500's.
