One of South America's most magnificent buildings, Palacio de Torre Tagle shows off the grand colonial architectural stylings of the early 18th century. The palace was built in 1730 by treasurer of the Royal Spanish Fleet, José B. Tagle, whose coat of arms remains above the door to this day. Pay special attention to the intricately carved wooden balconies on the patios. The Peruvian foreign ministry now operates out of this venerable building. The only way to gain access is by guided tour, so do your research before arriving.

  • Worth a visit, but you have to have an appointment. You only can see the inner courtyard. It was heavily restored after an earthquake, but still a great examplo of post colonial architecture
  • The most beautiful house in Lima
