Casa del Almirante
Cuesta del Almirante 103
It is one of the most remarkable colonial houses of the city of Cusco. Built in the early seventeenth century Inca stone by Francisco Aldrete Maldonado lieutenant mayor, called the Admiral, who lived until his death in 1643. Rebuilt by Pedro Peralta de los Rios after the earthquake of 1650 and restored again by the San Antonio Abad University of Cusco after the earthquake of 1950. Currently holds the arms of his rebuilders, who added the attractive silver front looks today, and its large courtyard with arcades and paneled rooms.
It brings together a vast collection of Keros (carved wooden ceremonial vessels), textiles, mummies and idols of gold and solid silver, as well as weapons, tools and Inca pottery. Its architecture shows the splendor of colonial art, as the outdoor balcony whose central pillar is shaped caryatid. It belongs to the San Antonio Abad National University of Cusco and has an enviable collection of archaeological pieces from the Inca culture.
