Casa de Aliaga Visit
After the founding of Lima on January 18th, 1535, Captain Jerónimo de Aliaga y Ramírez received a colonial house in the elegant area near the house of Francisco Pizarro, the Spanish Conqueror, (today the Government Palace). Ever since then the Aliaga family and their descendants have lived in the house, thus making it the oldest dwelling in the Americas that has been home to the same family for 17 generations.
Rebuilt and reshaped after the earthquakes, and some changes in architectural trends, the mansion has served for almost five centuries to Lima’s history. Its artistic value emerges from the beauty of its interior space, the poetic and evocative of their environments and the original distribution of the rooms.
As you wander through the beautiful rooms of this old mansion one can enjoy both the Colonial and Republican history of the city of Lima.
You will continue to the Main Square, where the Government Palace is located, panoramic visit to the Cathedral, where we will find the remains of the conqueror Francisco Pizarro, visit also the religious Museum of the Cathedral. Then you will visit Santo Domingo convent, The church is famous in Lima for being the only one with a “real” steeple, which in consequence of the construction over several stages has a very peculiar style. Inside the church are the oldest choir stalls of Lima, the famous statue of the Virgen del Rosario and the silver urns that contain the relicts of Santa Rosa (the patron saint of Lima) and San Martín de Porres.
