After the invasion to the city of Cusco, the Spaniards proceeded to the distribution of lots having corresponded to the conqueror Pedro Luis de Cabrera what we know today as the mansion of the Marquis of Valleumbroso. It was he who built it using Inca stones.
Later, the property was acquired by the first Marquis of Valleumbroso, who had the main body and the arcades of the first and second levels built with stone and pastel brick. The building belonged to the Marquis' descendants until 1803, when it became the property of Canon Luis Beltrán Parellón.
In the early twentieth century, the house was acquired by Mr. César Lomellini, who made a series of changes, but maintaining the original structure and the existing works of art in it. In 1978, the Ministry of Public Education acquired the mansion from the Lomellini family in favor of the current School of Fine Arts "Diego Quispe Tito" - Cusco.
Besides having one of the most emblematic stones of the city of Cusco "the stone of the 12 angles", the Museum of Religious Art houses an important collection of colonial religious paintings. You can also admire its Moorish style doors, carved cedar ceilings and spectacular stained glass windows.
Hours of operation: Monday to Sunday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Rates: Admission is included in the Religious Circuit Ticket.
The stone of the 12 angles can be observed 24 hours a day, since it is located on the outer wall of the Palace.
