More than 30 buildings looked at in detail, including of course the Church and Convent of Santo Domingo, the Church of San Agustin, the Church of San Pedro, Casa Osambela and Casa Riva Agüero” (

A visit to Casa de Aliaga can be included, as you can only visit this mansion through an agency or with a guide.
