Casa Museo de Pizarro

Casa Museo de Pizarro Review

The Pizarro family home is now a modest museum dedicated to the connection between Spain and Latin America. The first floor is a typical home from 15th-century Trujillo, and the second floor is divided into exhibits on Peru and Pizarro's life there. The museum explains the so-called "Curse of the Pizarro," recounting how the conquistador and his brothers were killed in brutal battles with rivals; those that survived never again enjoyed the wealth they had achieved in Peru.
