This ancient house is located on the corner of Real St. (now San Agustín), and the alley of the Back Door of the San Agustín Convent, (today Santa Mónica). It has a long history that goes back to the "Reparto de solares" recorded in 1534, by General Captain Francisco Pizarro. Its first owner was Conqueror Miguel Sánchez Ponce, who fought with Pizarro the conquest of Cajamarca.
The descendents of Miguel Sanchez Ponce had to rebuild the house after the earthquake of 1650 and at the beginning of the XVII century, one of the heiresses married General Bernardo Pardo de Figueroa, knight of the order of Santiago, who was related both to Lima's royal aristocracy and to Cusco's Marquises of
It was General Pardo de Figueroa who remodeled the house and gave it most of its actual elegance building the unusual galleries with stone arcs on the four sides of the yard, and had the staircase representations of the saints of his devotion painted.
The restoration project of the house, declared as a national historic monument, and the design for the new work received a very careful study and underwent a long process of inspections by the National Culture Institute.
