This place is amazing. I had not heard much about it before we went inside. This is the oldest private residence in South America that is still in the hands of the family, 17 generations later or so. The rusted sword in the hallway was...More

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.

An astonishingly beautiful building - our local guide was able to gain us entry into the building (not always possible - so plan ahead) - so peaceful and serene, and the dining room, which is available for group dinners - was stunning.
