This palace was very well maintained and had some interesting art work based on the Catholic faith. It was 20 soles for the entrance ticket, which is less than $10; however, I found in comparison to other attractions in Lima it was way over priced for what it offered. I would not recommend visiting this palace unless you have a... More

Well worth a visit...our guide was very good indeed and had lots of information on many things about the history of Lima and Peru and indeed South America, as well as the Palace. Unless you are a bit of a philistine, its worth a visit ...and your ticket covers the adjacent cathedral too. I would have given our guide 5... More

My wife and I visited on a short holiday in Lima. We wanted to visit the Cathedral but found out that there was a combination ticket that gave access to both the Cathedral and the Archbishop's Palace, so we decided to do both. The ticket gets you admission to the palace, and theoretically you could just walk around, admire the... More

We bought the combination ticket to the Archbishop's Palace and the Cathedral next door, which seemed very expensive to me. In retrospect, I would have skipped the Palace and just gone directly to the Cathedral. After seeing the furniture, marble and chandeliers, we left feeling that the church should have spent the money on the poor, rather than allowing the... More

We really learned a lot. Christian the tour guide was wonderful. But after a few monasteries and churches, it got to be repetitive.

Once the head of The Catholic Church for all of South America, opulent decorum is impressive with shrines to past archbishops with gold, sculpture and artwork. The private study was of special interest with the opening of the private residence is recent and a way to raise revenue for the church. It"s a little pricey to get in but worth... More
