This hidden house looks exactly as you were living in the 16 century! Beautiful, opulent and gracious, its a must see if you visit Lima. Be sure to make reservations with a tour agency, as you will not get inside without a tour guide.

As other reviewers have previously said, it is pricey considering you literally walk in a circle for 10 minutes then are rushed out of the home. There are no signs or anything to be able to read what you are looking at. I had no...More
