Built in 1738, the ornate Casa Ricketts has served as a seminary, archbishop’s palace, school and home to well-to-do families. Today it is the most splendiferous working bank in the city – possibly even Peru. Even if you’re not here for a transaction, it’s worth nosing around its small gallery of Arequipan art, and dual interior courtyards with their puma-headed fountains.
