The Larco Museum, founded by Rafael Larco Hoyle, is off the classical Lima tourist route. This refuge of peace and culture, surrounded by high white-painted walls and gardens filled with bougainvillea, houses a private collection built up over the years by the Alvarez Calderon family, descendants of Rafael Larco, and now impeccably displayed to the public.
This museum reveals an important part of our pre-Colombian history and the Andean cosmovision through its different artefacts, and at the same time has the most impressive collection of erotic ceramics known as huacos, studies and maps. It is a place you could spend a long time in; and especially taking advantage of a first-class guide who invites you to keep asking questions and enriching your spirit.
After marvelling at the impressive collection of pre-Hispanic exhibits in the Larco Museum, visitors can enjoy its relaxing café-restaurant on the terrace, opposite beautiful gardens and with a view of a pre-Hispanic pyramid and a colonial-era mansion. The menu offers typical Peruvian dishes and international fusion cuisine. An excellent way to end the tour.
