The palace was built in 1730 by treasurer of the Royal Spanish Fleet, José B. Tagle, whose coat of arms remains above the door to this day.

  • No explanation was offered and on the following Saturday it was also closed! So I would've get too excited about checking it out. I think alot of places in Lima only cater for tour groups 
  • The hallway leads to a first courtyard, entrance roomy, spacious, bright and surrounded by arcades, elegant balustrades, the style is mainly Andalusian Baroque, upstairs a stone arched entrance is reached by a spacious and opulent staircase at whose entrance is remarkable Trilobal

  • The most beautiful colonial House in Lima and one of the best kept as headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Peru. The Palace, which was built by José Bernardo de Tagle y Bracho, first Marquis of Torre Tagle, has two balconies with lattices whose wood was brought from Nicaragua and a doorway carved in stone that includes the family coat of arms on the façade. By one of the windows you can see a carriage of the 16TH century that was used by the owners. From the spacious courtyard, where you can enter only the weekends and holidays, is runners on the second floor, tiles from Seville in 1735 and a carved RAM on a wooden Lion, which have shaped is a trophy of war of the marquises.

  • The mansion is built to early of the century 18th and was finished in 1735 for José Bernardo of Tagle Bracho to who, the 26 of November of 1730, the King Felipe V of Spain, under their extensive services to the Crown, granted the title of Marquis of Tower Tagle, making it thus in the founder of that marquisate.
