This place might be a bit polarising for people - I can imagine really liking it for the architecture and furniture (like I did) and maybe the art (which I didn't), or you might find it boring and uninteresting. I love the design of the building around the central courtyard, the thick walls and high ceilings, the timber floors etc.... More

We sneaked in to Casa Moral right before closing to check out the great furniture and architecture. We enjoyed being able to lead ourselves on a self-guided tour to learn more about Arequipa's history and see the historical artifacts. Great to see inside this colonial home, and to check out the Peruvian currency exhibition.

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.
