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.

  • 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
  • Beautiful colonial House decorated and redecorated with taste for centuries. The visit is short and a bit expensive but it's worth, and it changes from churches and convents!

  • A House of the colony, with people who live in it. Medium rare I guess, living in a House Museum. Interesting to see it as it was at that time so overdone in ornament. Advisable to pass to see her learn about that time
