If you are planning on going away or simply resting for this coming holiday and long weekend, we invite you to visit the following castles that can be found in Peru, which emulate the best European buildings and medieval infrastructure!
This castle has a Gothic style and was built in 1929 by order of doctor Carlos Rospigliosi. It is currently the headquarters of the Peruvian Aeronautical Museum so you can enjoy the architecture and also the exhibitions. The address is Jr. Manuel del Pino 488, Santa Beatriz, Cercado de Lima.
Just two hours from Lima, this replica of a medieval castle located on a rocky cliff looks like one of the biggest attractions in the district of Chancay, in Huaral. Its 30,000 square meters of extension has house gardens, terraces, a museum and underground passages. The address is the km 79 of the Panamericana Norte.
Located in the town of Lamas, 22 km from Tarapoto, its medieval architecture will leave you amazed. Its construction, based on hand-worked stone, has five levels and it is in the Peruvian jungle. Address: Jirón Martin de la Riva and Herrera, Lamas.
Located in the south of Lima, this castle is at Km 146 of the old South Panamerican highway, in San Vicente de Cañete. It was built by order of José Unanue, son of Hipólito Unanue, in honor of the memory of his father.
If you have the opportunity to visit the beaches of Mollendo, 85 km from the city of Arequipa, you will have the opportunity to appreciate this castle built between 1908 and 1910 by order of José Miguel Forga. It was declared a Historic Monument of the Nation in 1986.
