Colonial Peru Forum
Osambela House is one of the biggest houses built in Lima during the colonial period. It is located at Conde de Superunda Street 298, in the historic centre of Lima. It is also called Casa de Oquendo.
This mansion was built between 1803 and 1805, but was officially finished in 1807. It has five balconies and a mirador from which the first owner of the place, Don Martin de Osambela, watched with a spyglass the arrival of galleons to the port of Callao. It was renovated in 2003 and serves as a venue for art exhibitions and cultural events.
