Gala Dinner: On the broad Larco Avenue in front of the Central Park, located a few metres from the Miraflores Municipality, is the old but impressive House of the Castro Iglesias-Thorndike family, which was constructed in 1912 by the Architect Rozzaga.

The Castro Iglesias family goes way back to Peru's Colonial period, when one of its forbearers earned the titles Count of Lurigancho, and Marques of Otero, for services he rendered to the Spanish Crown. Mrs. Throndike was the daughter of a very distinguished Chilean lady, and an American engineer, who came to Peru with Henry Meiggs to construct railway bridges in the heights of the Andean mountains. The house was remodelled in 1932 by Architect-Engineer Luis Santisteban Benavides, which gave it its present look. It was fashioned after Peru's Government Palace (the Presidential Palace in the Centre of Lima), which was also being restored at the same time. The Casa Garcia Alvarado offers six distinct ambiences that conserve unaltered, the elegant tradition of the 1930s. Our Gala Dinner will take place at "The Garden", the perfect setting for shows and parties.

The garden is serenely beautiful and very typically Spanish. It is divided into four passageways that converge at a central fountain, and is surrounded by a hallway, a service area which has a back door facing Esperanza Street, the interior façade of the home of one of the members of the family, and a small nursery with different types of plants. (3 Course meal inc glass of wine, soft drinks and mineral water).
