- This house, one of the first colonial constructions in Cusco, was the former home of the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega. Its architecture is mixed: the foundations and facade are of Inca style but were built during the colonial period while the Spanish occupied Peru. There is a good collection of Inca textiles, ceramics, and gold and silverware. The second floor holds an exhibition of Cusqueñan art. Another room houses temporary exhibitions and doubles as an auditorium for cultural events.
