PostPosted: Nov 23, 2014 23:06    Post subject: Museo Andres Del Castillo - Lima  

I visited again the Casa Belen located in the historic center of Lima.
The Casa Belen is a beautifully restored mansion which origins date back to around 1606. Today the privately owned historical monument houses the museum Andres Del Castillo displaying the amazing personal collection of minerals, pre-Colombian Chancay ceramics and ancient textiles of the "del Castillo" family.

Very nice museum, and photos. Thanks!

Interesting to see Jaroslav Hyrsl's excellent book on display in one of the cases!

The lapis lazuli from Chuquicamata probably needs a new label.
