House of Goyeneche or Rada

Just across the street from Palacio Torre Tagle is an impressive 18th century mansion, the "Casa de Rada" or "Casa de Goyeneche". The house is one of the first buildings that shows a distinct French influence, typical for buildings in the mid 18th century in Lima. Characteristic for Lima are the beautiful preserved balconies and distinctive doors.

The inside is decorated with unique pieces from Colonial and Republican times like great crystal chandeliers, Spanish clocks, Venetian vases, enormous mirrors and oil paintings with beautifully decorated gold and silver picture frames. The building was purchased by the Banco de Crédito del Peru, restored and reopened in 1971. Unfortunately the house is not open to the public but once again, you might be able to sneak a glance at the amazing patio (as we did).
