Casa de la Emancipación information
Now the Banco Continental, this building features a mishmash of colonial and Republican styles and is best known as the site where Trujillo’s independence from colonial rule was formally declared on December 29, 1820. Check out the unique cubic Cajabamba marble stone flooring; there are also galleries dedicated to revolving art exhibitions, Peruvian poet César Vallejo and period furniture. It hosts live music events as well – look for posters around town on your visit.
