Fodor's Review

Across from the Iglesia Merced on the Plaza de Armas, you'll see the colonial-style Casa Ruiz de Ochoa. The building houses an art gallery with paintings, sculptures, and local crafts by Peruvian artists. The intricate 18th-century doorway mixes both European and indigenous techniques in a style known as mestizo.
