Casa Aliaga is the oldest colonial mansion in the Western Hemisphere and is still inhabited by the same family for the last 17 centuries since 1534. We walked through a small wooden opening and came into the entrance with an imposing wooden staircase that lead to the elegant salons richly decorated with colonial furniture. The inner patio was beautiful and looked so peaceful. I would love to have grabbed a book and read. It was a little humid and no air conditioning.
