Casa Aliaga - Museum Lima - Peru

Casa Aliaga, or the Aliaga House, is a fascinating home and museum. Jer贸nimo de Aliaga was one of Francisco Pizarro鈥檚 most trusted lieutenants during the exploration and conquest of Peru, and he was rewarded in 1535 with a huaca, or Indian temple, which he converted into a home. In places, the original stonework is still visible. The home has since remained in the Aliaga family for an astonishing 17 generations. Today this restored colonial home features a series of rooms that represent life in Lima in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
