Torre Tagle Palace

Considered one of the most magnificent buildings in South America, this unique mansion shows the elegance and grace of the architecture in the early 18th century. It was built in 1730 by José B. Tagle, the Marquis of Torre Tagle and treasurer of the Royal Spanish fleet. His coat of arms is still visible above the door.

Flanked by two impressive carved wooden balconies (in our opinion the most beautiful ones in Lima), the stone entrance is carved like the ones you normally find at a church. The inside court is a typical Seville style patio with extraordinary wooden balconies and galleries (beautiful!). The main hall is still furnished with lovely pieces from the 18th century. Today this best example of Colonial architecture in the country houses the Peruvian Foreign Affairs Ministry. Unfortunately it can only be visited after prior coordination or as part of a city tour offered by some tour operators in Lima.
