About
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.

Our cruise ship offered a nighttime city tour with dinner at Casa Aliaga. This home has been in the Aliaga family for 16 generations. It was beautifully furnished, and we enjoyed the ambiance as we had dinner with several other passengers from our cruise. When we entered, we were given a choice of beverages along with appetizers. This was my first Pisco Sour and not my last. Very good! We started with Artichoke Souffle, and the main course was sliced beef (chicken for me) along with rolls and fresh vegetables and red wine. Dessert was a very good regional dish that was made from the Lucuma fruit topped with melted chocolate and your choice of coffee or tea. Very delicious! If you have an opportunity to have dinner here, I would definitely recommend. The excursion was on the pricey side, but the experience is memorable.

This was pretty cool to see. You can't even tell there is a house here from the street. There are about a dozen rooms open you can visit. Family owned for like the last 500 years.

What a special dinner! This casa is still home to a Lima family, now 17 generations. Our cruise tour provided us with a tour and a special dinner in this mansion. The very large wooden doors lead you into a foyer with a staircase. One side is for tour and dinner visitors, the other is the private residence. As we toured the grand rooms we enjoyed pisco sours, wine and a nut liquer. Appetizers included cheese and olives, cheese straws and liver mousse. We walked through an atrium which clearly is a respite for the family away from the city center hustle and bustle. Then it was time to go to the dining room. Asparagus Mousse, Beef tenderloin and Mousse with Cherries. WIth local classical music. A divine tour and dinner.

This is the oldest house in Lima. Still lived in today. Beautiful architecture and gorgeous decorations within.

Popular and very busy on arrival. Some steps up at the entrance to enter however quite flat after. Stunning plants and flowers and beautiful taste in furniture, paintings and furnishings.

Well worth finding and having a look. Photographs allowed.

We had seen the building, as we walked in the area close to our hotel, and were really impressed with it. The structure is a low one story stone building that is beautiful--well designed and executed with great attention to detail. The little yard in front is most attractive and inviting, but it is protected by a very nice antique gate and fence. We really wanted to see inside it and get a chance to experience it is a more personal manner, but that was not possible.....

Or, so we thought! Little did we know that we were going to have dinner here the next evening! Our guide told us that this is one of the special places that GLOBUS included on our trip. The present owner of the house (which has ben in the same family for almost 500 years) makes the property available for dinners, private events, weddings and meetings. She actually hosted our dinner and ate with us as she told stories and answered our many questions. The meal was very good, nicely presented, and well served in the huge interior courtyard. We were impressed.

The guided portion of our tour of the inside of the house is really grand. We got lot of information on the history of the structure and the many inhabitants. We were then allowed an hour or so for a self guided tours of many rooms. Over the years, there have been many changes to the interior. At the present time,iIt is furnished in a Victorian manner. Many of the antiques and art pieces have been collected by family members. It is really a great experience to be able to walk through all the rooms, and see the layout of the building.

This is one of those wonderful unexpected "surprises" you get when you travel. It is an experience that is well worth whatever the cost. If you can get it set up when you are in Lima, I strongly recommend it. The owner (who lives in an "apartment" at the back of the mansion) has set up a non-profit corporation to help with the maintenance of the property--which is significant because of the age of the property and size!

If you have a group large enough (we had 16, but I do not know the minimum), you should make the contacts to see if it can be done for your group. This is NOT an event you can set up upon arrival in country! EVERYONE in our group was totally pleased with this visit the owner, and the meal--I am certain you will be as well.

When we arrived, our promised English-speaking guide was off sick. But the lovely man on hand spoke slowly and clearly, and gave us a delightful tour. Beautiful house, and a good reminder of how well conquistadors (and other colonialists) can live after they take over a culture.

This home has been continuously inhabited by seventeen generations of the same family since 1535, when Francisco Pizarro, close friend of their ancestor Jeronimo, decided to move to Lima where his Inca princess wife Quispe Sisa had lands.
In this land who was before part of the Inca palace terraces (that’s why you enter and find a stair) Jeronimo de Aliaga built his home, was in charge of Peru after Pizarro’s murder until the first viceroy arrived; an Aliaga carried the flag proclaiming Independency with San Martin in 1821, and the place shows that the peace one finds in its rooms comes probably from feeling there must remain a blessing from Saint Rose of Lima or San Martin both visitors of its oratory, as much has changed out of its walls, but within, time has been a friend, not a foe

I had the special pleasure of being received and entertained by the Count of San Juan de Lurigancho himself, enjoyed a wonderful lunch and hours
of inimitable conversation.

While walking around we met a couple of visitors and then a European group; we spend a while enjoying their company and sharing thoughts on such a one of a kind place.

If you’re to Perú, don’t miss it!!!!
Ruins and museums will always be there, this place is alive.
