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.

  • 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.
  • Very interesting and beautiful home, still occupied by the defendants of the original family from the 1500's.
  • 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
