Now the Banco Continental building, this hodgepodge of colonial and Republican styles is 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.
