CASA CLORINDA MATTO


Address: Plaza de San Francisco (Saint Francisco Square)
Around the Plaza San Francisco, over the Inca terraces of the village of Carmenca, they built the first house of XVI century and in 1580 Juan de Armenta occupied it. In 1632, the ninth bishop of Cusco Fernando de Vera y Zuņiga moved here. His family coat of arms was discovered in the last restoration work. However, people in Cusco remember this House as the House of Clorinda Matto de Turner: a writer and precursor of native literature who was probably born here in 1854. In fact, the author of "Aves sin nido" (1889) married to a rich English peasant must have spent most part of her life between this house and the family farm.

Dressed with murals
Its traditional patio made with stone and bricks is internally decorated with mural paintings that were saved when they rebuilt the building in the sixties. Many rooms also have pictorial decorations and golden and multicolour coffered ceilings. Currently, there are some offices of the "Instituto Peruano de Seguridad Social" (Peruvian Institute of Social Security)
