House of the Aliaga Family

The "Casa de Aliaga" is the oldest Colonial mansion in Lima, maybe even in whole South America. The house has been owned and lived in by the Aliaga family and their descendants since Franzisco Pizarro granted the land to Jerónimo de Aliaga in 1535. Originally there was a pre-Colombian altar on that plot of land owned by "Curaca Tauli Chusco" (the reign of the Rimac valley).

Even if time, weather and pollution seem to slowly destroy the facade, the beautiful balcony is still impressive. Absolutely amazing is the inside: the inner patio is extraordinary and an imposing wooden staircase leads up to the elegant salons that are richly decorated with Colonial furniture.

The Casa Aliaga can be visited either with special tour operators in Lima or after prior arrangement with the Casa Aliaga. They as well can recommend specialized private tour guides if you wish to visit independently. Or book an absolutely stunning (but pricey) lunch or dinner with them. An incredible experience!

Usual errors are: Not visiting in winter to see if you
still like it, not ensuring you've a job to arrive to, not mastering Spanish and
affected by solitude, or assuming that Italy continues to be cost effective
to live-in (it's not).

I've seen this amazing house in Lima. I asked helped from a soldier on the street and he knocked on the door and somebody let me in and toured me around for about 30 soles...
