Casa Moral is a beautiful colonial home in the historic city centre of Arequipa. It was interesting to get a chance to see what was behind one of the many beautiful facades lining the city streets. Inside, there isn’t a ton of information describing the house/history/décor, but we enjoyed wandering through the rooms and courtyard.

This colonial building is very decorated with beautuful doors and windows. The strong colour to some part of the building make the building more fascinating.

If you have ever been to Spain you can safely give this one a miss. Aside from the old currency exposition, it is just an average house built and decorated to Spanish colonial style.

The house has been damaged in earthquakes, so unfortunately most or all the furnishing and pieces of art are not original. However it is a nice collection. The guide, Alvaro, is quite knowledgeable about paintings and he really makes the visit worthwhile.

This mansion, which is nicely renovated and has lots of period furnishing gives a good insight of how the rich lived during the colonial time. Especially the woodcarving is very nice and charming. Worth the 5 soles entrance fee, photography allowed.

Interesting if you want to learn more about life in Arequipa in the 18th century. It actually delivered more than I was expecting after reading some visitors' comments in tripadvisor.

This is an old house, which originally dates from the 17th century. I say originally because it has been severely damaged from earthquakes and rebuilt at least twice since then. So, most of what you see is probably about 100 years old. It is nicely furnished with period pieces. The main problem is that there are only a few plaques,... More

We had an awkward tour when we stopped in for a visit. Instead of describing the history and significance of the building, the guide quizzed us about objects and their meaning, seemingly gaining amusement from our perplexed responses. The 5 soles entrance fee is a bargain but we weren't counting on a guide and didn't know whether or not we... More
