Neighborhood: Lima

Built in the last part of the 18th century, this house was named in honour of its last proprietor, the distinguished writer Don José de la Riva Agüero. The Roman floor plan-introduced by the Spaniards-characteristically found in Lima, harmoniously integrates the ceramic tiles from Seville skirting the plinth of the interior walls. The passing of time and generations through the house is clearly reflected in the different styles of furnishings. It currently belongs to the Universidad Católica and houses the Instituto Riva Agüero Museo de Arte Popular, the Centro de Etnomusicología, dedicated to Andean music, as well as a vast library and historic archives, with over 60,000 volumes.
