Located at 358 Ucayali St. across from Torre Tagle palace.

This house is specially interesting because was the first one with French influence in the beginning of 18th century. Nothing has been changed in this house regarding the traditional composition from the last century in the spiritual way, size, distribution, etc. However, you can see the changes in its façade about decoration and detail, curved panels in the balconies, gates, and the masonry work in the portal show the epoch and provenance. In the same way, the glazing that forms open galleries in the balconies, the arch in the central window and the classic profiles of the cornices confirm the bourbon influence. The elevation is compound in a compact harmonious and unity among the elements architecturally. All of this makes this house one of the truly traditional house form Lima.
