    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

    In the historic centre of Lima, 3 blocks from the Plaza Mayor and declared by Unesco, this wonderful building today houses the State Department of Foreign Affairs of Peru. His name is Marquis de Torre Tagla, built at 1,735. Has wonderful staircases and grand halls, but the visitation is allowed only in the courtyards. Still, it's worth, the inner courtyard is beautiful, and the impressive woodwork, columns, balconies and doors. This not to mention the arcades of Arab influence, on wooden columns. It is said that in a interior gave rich Golden 16TH century carriage.
