CASA CABRERA


Address: Plaza de las Nazarenas 231
Telephone: 23-3210
Admission time: Mon- Fri from 8:00 to 18:00. Free entrance
Description: Situated in the square of Nazarenas, outstanding on the facade we admire the nobiliary coat of arms, it has a wide patio, arches and spacious rooms.

This House is on the "Plaza de las Nazarenas" and its especial architectonic display is the result of a long history. Its first construction dates from the middle of XVI century. At that time, it belonged to the conqueror Alonso Diaz, son in law of Pedrarias and partner of Hernandes Giron in the civil war the commissionaires had against the Royal Tribunal.

After Giron lost the war, Alonso Diaz was beheaded and his house turned into a "half breed concentration house" dedicated to the daughters of those conquerors who died while fighting. In 1556, the monastery of Santa Clara was established there and it continued until 1622, when the nuns moved to the lands they currently occupy. In that occasion the church and the cloisters became property of Jeronimo Luis de Cabrera: a successful neighbour that gave his name to the farm.

The structure
Cabrera divided the nave of the church, carved a facade with his coat of arms and opened windows and balconies giving to this building its definitive external appearance. But even today, the elevation of this house over the level of the street reminds us about its old ecclesiastic origin. During Republic times, the patio changed completely adding the metallic balustrade to the high gallery. Between 1981 and 1986, the building was fully restored to become a bank. Today, it shelters the cultural rooms of the Banco Continental and continues having an active presence in Cusco.
