The Corregidor’s House

The surrounding buildings that you see here are only part of what is now called the "Corregidor's House", a name given by the National Institute of Culture (INC).

casa2

The title 'corregidor' was a Spanish title given to officials in Spain and the colonies, from the Spanish word 'corrector'. In fact, it was like the role of judge, governor and tax collector all rolled into one (Ed.note).

The house was built by the priest Silvestre de Valdés, who was put in charge of the construction of the Cathedral in Puno, after a visit to Puno by the Earl of Lemos in 1668. In his testament in 1701 the priest left instructions that his house was to be transformed into a chaplaincy for perpetual masses. The House was rented to José Salcedo, Marquee of Villa Rica de Salcedos in 1707.

For a century, the Church remained in charge of The House that had indeed been transformed into a Chaplaincy; then, in 1802, the Church organized a public sale and The House was acquired by Miguel Pasqual de San Román, who in 1809 transferred it to María Manuela de Orellana y Velasco, daughter of Joaquín de Orellana who was the Corregidor in Puno at that time.

casa4

María Manuela in turn gave the property to Manuel Cavallero, and from that time on The House was divided up and a series of cases for successors rights were lodged, almost up to 1900, when the property became unified again under the effort of Juan Manuel Gerónimo Costa Ondarza, who was representative in the Senate of the Republic for Puno. Upon his death The House passed on to the sisters Costa Rodríguez. One of them was Carlos Dreyer Spohr’s wife, a German painter and collector of antiques. His collection would later constitute the Municipal Dreyer Museum.

casa5

In 1976, the heirs of the family Dreyer-Costa sold part of The House to the Municipality of Puno. In 1980, the other half was declared an Historical Monument typifying colonial domestic architecture of the XVIII century; together with the small strip between The House and the ´Prefecture´ which belonged to María de Noriega, widow of Barriga. Until 1841 this strip was used as a street and in 1981 was acquired by Augusto Dreyer Costa and Christiane Lefebvre. Christiane Lefebvre was an architect and carried out the most serious reconstruction of The House until then. In 1986 they jointly sold the entire property to the Peruvian Central Co-operative Credit Bank (C.C.C.). Then in 1992, this bank liquidated its assets and its properties were on auction from then on. In 1995, The House was sold in the 16th public auction, to the sole bidder, Mrs. Ana María Pino Jordán, the present-day owner.

A brief tour

The ancient part of The House, which preserves its original features, reaches from the street to the first court. Its main feature is the second floor and hall. The walls of the first floor are 115 cm wide at its base and become thinner as they reach higher. The door still is the original one and has allowed to establish the antiquity of The House.

casa1

The stone used for the porch is of the same type as that of the towers of the Cathedral. Note that the body has a type of stone and a style of carving that is different from that of the towers. The reason is that they were constructed in different periods, not only in a chronological but also in a historical and architectural sense. This probably was one of the reasons for which The House was classified as belonging to 18th century domestic colonial architecture.

Another evidence of its antiquity are the tiles which probably covered the entire hall. Only four of them were rescued. They are located on the arch towards the garden, seen from the entrance of the building. They offer an impression of the motives, the colors and the texture of the pieces, which also indicate its period of origin (16th century). In the garden several niches can be discerned, which possibly sheltered images in bundle.

casa3

The most impressive and beautiful one is located under the stone stairs and served as a small oratory, to its right the place where books or prayer instruments were kept can still be discerned. In the court there are also carved stones. One of these (the one cut in half) clearly reads “Year of the King of 1732”. This type of stone was part of mine porches. Those that adorn the court of The House presumably were part of the mine called “the Cloak”. The room on the second floor - with balcony on the street-side - was Silvestre de Valdez's "quarter", as can be deduced from a rental contract dated 1707. It turns out logical if we bear in mind that the Viceroy Count of Lemos entrusted the parson Silvestre de Valdez with the construction of the Cathedral and that the latter needed to monitor the fulfillment of this task from an administrative and spiritual point of view.

casa6

The House has suffered several reconstructions and splits (1781, 1810, 1905 approximately, 1981, 2001). The last one preserved the most ancient parts, rescued part of a street - which was auctioned publicly in 1841 – as well as the second court. It also constructed and reconstructed the infrastructure where today the library is located.

The entire area of The House measures 600 square meters. Nevertheless, only little more than half of this corresponds to its original historical size. The other part was annexed in time and this other historical half nowadays constitutes the Dreyer Museum.
