Notes on the Geography of Peru: Cusco: Photo 46

world pictures Peru: Cusco




In the mid-19th century, Bolivia and Peru were briefly unified as a confederation. The leader of that unified state was Bolivia's Marshal Andres de Santa Cruz, who bequeathed this triumphal arch to mark the event. The confederation broke apart after three years, though the arch was raised a generation later. Anyway, the point is that the Marshal had occupied the Admiral's house in those years. Call it the premier address in town.
