It has being built in the 16th century, namely in the year 1562 this by order of Hernando Pizarro and his wife and niece Francisca Pizarro Yupanqui, daughter of Francisco Pizarro. The construction got restored into the 18th century this because it was in so a bad state that it could collapse. It is located on the opposite site of the San Martin church on the Plaza Mayor, a magnificent building.

Sixteenth-century palace on the Plaza Mayor
Sep 2017 • Couples
.

This Palacio - palace - is one of two handsome 16th century noble houses on the Plaza Mayor of Trujillo. It has a curious plateresque corner balcony. If you look closely you can see images of the "conquest" of Peru - politeness nowadays would not allow us to commemorate this in this manner as a noble event.

But the Pizarro family (the family whose son, was a Conquistador, sailing off to South America and bringing back riches) owed their wealth and their title Marques de la Conquista to this historical event, and were supremely proud of it.

The palace was built for Hernando Pizarro, both the brother and also the son-in-law of the Conquistador Francisco Pizarro, having married his niece Francisca, Francisco's daughter. We wouldn't approve of that either, nowadays, but the aristocracy often practiced this. The King Felipe IV married his niece Mariana de Austria in 1649.

The palace was renovated in the 18th century after it started to disintegrate and become a public danger.
