The Museo de Platería Peruana Vittorio Azzariti is part of the Educational Association Antonio Raimondi. The museum displays one of the best collections of silver objects of the Colonial and Republican period in whole Peru.

Named after its promotor, the Italian Vittorio Azzariti, the Museo de Platería Peruana is part of the Educational Association Antonio Raimondi and housed in the same location as the Raimondi Museum. The unique pieces show the remarkable high manual skills of craftsmen during the Colonial era, a tradition that goes back to pre-Hispanic times. Shown are religious objects, images of planetary constellations, animals and many more beautiful pieces that are worth seeing.
