  • Beautiful building in which guided tours are available to learn about its history. The courtyards are very nice and are offered in the very interesting exhibitions (it is worth to go with time to stop and visit them).

  • Great place with exhibitions and interesting events as well as wonderful architecture.
  • An excellent old venue at the time of the colony, dream-like architecture. This cultural centre has 2 museums, the Museum of art, with modern and contemporary collections as well as Juan Acha Hall with travelling exhibitions; and the anthropology museum with antique collections of Peruvian cultural expressions.

  • The place is not very safe at night, but it is quite central and there is nearby parking. In the morning it shows that the House is quite neglected. Not a hand of paint would you wrong and fix garden

  • La casona de San Marcos is a cultural heritage which is well preserved and whose care is permanent to the present day. Within its facilities courses are provided throughout the year that promote art and culture, such as workshops for all ages and at affordable prices. It is courses of singing, musical instruments, dances, theatre, among others. Exhibitions are also made and whose income is free. I think a beautiful place of knowing when one walks through the historical centre, above all by history that represents in terms of universities of the Peru.
