Here lived Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra.
If you want to visit an authentic house of the Peruvian Republican period, the best preserved site of this era is the 'Museo de Bodega y Quadra', that's located in what was the dwelling of the sailor 'Juan Francisco de la Bodega and Quadra', a member of the Spanish Armada who lived during the 18th century and discovered Vancouver Island. You could say that the building contains several museums in one: on the top floor, there's a re-creation of a colonial house with objects and documents of that period that belong to the family. But in the basement, you'll find a surprising archaeological site which has discovered the remains of a house before the pre-Hispanic period, with elements ranging from pieces of gold, Ming ceramics and wood carvings to remains of the 16th to the 18th centuries. The well and the pantry of the house also make up the archaeological set that will surprise you without doubt.
