One of South America's most magnificent buildings, Palacio de Torre Tagle shows off the grand colonial architectural stylings of the early 18th century. 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. Pay special attention to the intricately carved wooden balconies on the patios. The Peruvian foreign ministry now operates out of this venerable building.

  • The Palacio de Torre Tagle is one of the best examples of residential Lima architecture from the 18th century. Its carved wood balconies are superb.  more »
  • at least in passing it is worth stopping to observe its façade as the ultimate expression of the baroque of the city of Lima. You can also visit the Interior but prior permission because now is home to a Government Ministry
