Superb collection of ceramics. Highlight was touring the storage rooms. Also has textiles, silver, gold, and a separate erotica collection. Visited in the evening and also ate dinner in the restaurant. Recommend the Lomo Saltado.

Large collection of Incan pottery, jewelry, weapons, head dress and ‘the Exotic Room’. Their way of life, customs and beliefs are all documented in these works, including their liberal sexual practises. All in pottery!
