Colonial Buildings

Among colonial buildings, clearly outstanding is the Archbishop's Palace, today Museum of Religious Art. Located on Hatunrumiyoc street, this palace belonged to many families and persons of renown, such as Bishop Fray Vicente de Valverde and the marquises of Salas Valdez. In its Arab~style colonial structure, outstanding are the doorway and the balcones, the chapel with its altar of gold leaf, the usé of mosaics and the carved ceilings in the interior.

Initially the dwelling of Don Francisco de Anaya y Altamirano, the Palace of the Admiral is another beautiful Cusco expression of colonial architecture. At present ˇt is an archeological museum holding a wide variety of Inca remnants found in the Cusco zone, such as pottery, textiles, gold and silver work and mummies.

At 400 San Agustín street still stands the handsome building of colonial style called the House of the Four Busts.

Decorated with rose-windows and columns in relief, this mansion owes its name to the fact that over the doorway, worked in a single piece of stone, are four busts, as well as the coat of arms of the Spanish family of the Salas Valdez marquises.

The Casa Cabrera is a splendid building situated on the small Nazarenas square. It shows the features of the architecture of the period and on its front is a noble coat of arms; there is also a broad patio, arches and spacious rooms.

Located on the corner of Heladeros (ice-cream vendors) and Garcilaso streets, is the home of Inca Garcilaso de la Vega.

Built on an Inca "andén" (tilled terrace), this building is a singular example of colonial architecture. In what was once the home of the author of The Royal Commentaries, today functions the Regional Historical Museum with valuable paintings of the Cusco school.

Also impressive are the homes of the Marquis of Picoaga, of the marquises of Valleumbroso and of the Marquis of Escobar,that still retain all their tradicional attractiveness.
