El Castillo de Forga

Historic Building in Mollendo

El Castillo de Forga was built in 1908 on a crag between two of the beaches just south of the city center by a rich arequipeño (inhabitant of Arequipa) in love with European architecture. Once an eye-catching stately home, it is currently unoccupied and not open to visitors. There have been proposals to turn it into a casino but nothing has come to fruition.
