Treasures from The Rafael Larco Herrera Museum – Lima Travel Guide

The Rafael Larco Herrera Museum exhibits artifacts, jewelry and ceramics from more than 3,000 years of Perus pre-Columbian history.

The museum is housed in a 17th century colonial mansion, itself built on the remnants of an ancient pyramid that dates back to the 7th Century.

Among its gold and silver artifacts is a world renowned collection of Huacos Eróticos, graphic ceramic depictions of sexual acts from the Moche culture, which dominated Perus northern coast for 800 years until about 800 A.D.

With a quiet courtyard, a lush green lawn, and bougainvillea climbing the walls, it could be mistaken for a secluded country hacienda, even though its in the heart of one of South Americas largest and busiest cities.
