A glimpse into the world of Trujillo’s upper crust, the 19th-century Palacio Iturregui—a bright yellow neoclassical beauty with a large central courtyard, elaborate window gratings, copious columns, gold ceiling moldings and marble statues—is the current home to the Club Central. Though this is a traditional, members-only social club, you can tour it as a guest. There’s unrestricted access to the courtyard, but visiting the lavish rooms is limited to particular hours.
