La Mansión del Fundador - Arequipa  (Photos © Jorge Mazzotti)
16th century colonial estate. Built on the border of the Socabaya River, this residence has belonged to several proprietors through history. Originally the property of the founder of Arequipa, it belonged in the 16th century to the congregation of the Jesuits who built many enclosures, terraces and chapels. In 1785 it was acquired by Don Juan Crisóstomo de Goyoneche y Aguerreverre, who converted it into the residence it is today. The building has a main entrance with a dramatic vestibule with vaulted ceiling. There is also a Mirador with panoramic views and beautiful, intimate chapel. Admission 9 am 5 pm.
