  • Casa - Museo de Pizarro

    By the name of this museum you might get the impression that it is the house where Francisco Pizarro was born. Of course it is not. It is not even on the same spot as he was born.Having said that, you can in this little museum find things from the time of the Conquest and a surveying description about the history of Pizarro and the conquest.
