Overview

Colonial House in Lima. Built by Jeronimo de Aliaga y Ramirez in 1535, the same year of Lima's foundation. Ever since then the Aliaga family and their descendants have lived in the house, which is now occupied by the seventeen generation of the same family. Rebuilt and reshaped after the earthquakes, and some changes in architectural trends, the mansion has served for almost five centuries to Lima's history.

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.

It is a nice house having been lived by a noble family and still inhabited by their descendants. At the cost of 30 Soles per person and additional money for tour guide, I think tourists are just (over)paying for noble family to continue their life...More

Lovely home with photos of the family allowing you to see the family over the years. Having been owned by the same family since 1534, the furnishings and artwork were beautiful.
