In Casona Vivanco, the 17th-century Museo Cáceres honors Andrés Cáceres, an Ayacucho resident and former Peruvian president best known for his successful guerrilla leadership during the 1879–83 War of the Pacific against Chile. This is one of the city's best-preserved historic mansions, which today protects a mix of military memorabilia and ancient local artifacts, including stone carvings and ceramics. Note the gallery of colonial-style paintings. The Museo de
Arte Religioso Colonial can also be found within these storied walls, and exhibits antique objects from the city's early days.
