Casa del Corregidor - Historical Building Puno - Peru

The exquisite Casa del Corregidor, dating from the 17th century, was the seat of the corregidor, or "corrector," a title traditionally associated to a sovereign who served as magistrate, governor and tax-collector. Later the Catholic Church appropriated it, and then a private family, who eventually sold it to the city, at which point it was declared a historical landmark.

The Casa del Corregidor, also called Centro de Economía Solidaria, is now home to a handful of progressive enterprises, like Café Bar de la Casa del Corregidor, the fair trade shop K’antu and All Ways Travel Agency, which sponsors cultural and volunteer tourism. The Casa del Corregidor also sponsors art expositions, talks, workshops and shows.
