Cabrera House Pre-Columbian Art Museum

DESCRIPTION

En tiempos de los incas, en el espacio que hoy ocupa la Casa Cabrera, se ubicaba el Amaru Cata de la Ciudad Imperial (una escuela o casa del saber) cuyos restos de los muros originales aún se pueden apreciar en el zaguán de la casona.

En el Siglo XVII la casona pasó a ser propiedad del matrimonio constituido por Don Luis Jerónimo de Cabrera y La Cerda y doña Isabel Tordoya y Bazán. Cabrera fue Alcalde Ordinario del Cabildo, Justicia y Regimiento del Cusco en 1649. El escudo de armas que hoy ostenta la portada de la casa pertenece a la familia Cabrera, dándole la denominación con la que hoy se le conoce.

En 1981 el Banco Continental adquirió el inmueble y realizó una labor de restauración a fin de ponerla en valor, rescatando sus características arquitectónicas.

En el 2002, el Banco Continental une esfuerzos con el Museo Larco de Lima para abrir las puertas del Museo de Arte Precolombino – MAP, en junio del 2003.
