Goyeneche Palace

Casa Goyeneche is a 17th century manorial house in the city of Arequipa, Peru. It attracts tourists interested in observing colonial architecture in Peru. Located on La Merced street, the house looks much the same as other manorial houses of those times. It has ample patios, arched ceilings, doors and windows in typical colonial baroque style as well as a balcony. The façade shows the shield of Jose Sebastian de Goyeneche, former Arequipa bishop. Nowadays it hosts the Banco Central de Reserva branch offices in Arequipa.
