Casa de Oquendo

Lonely Planet review

Two blocks to the north of the Casa de la Riva, the cornflower blue Casa de Oquendo is a ramshackle turn-of-the-19th-century house (in its time, the tallest in Lima) with a creaky lookout tower that, on a clear day, has views of Callao. Arrange tours for small groups ahead of time with a suggested donation.
