Casa Grau

Museum in Piura

This restored colonial home is the birthplace of Admiral Miguel Grau, born on July 27, 1834. The house was restored by the Peruvian navy and is now a museum. Admiral Grau was a hero of the War of the Pacific against Chile (1879–83), and the captain of the British-built warship Huáscar. The museum contains personal belongings of the admiral and period furnishings and is worth a wander.
