Right next to the Cathedral of Lima is where the Archbishop lived. Beautiful museum fully restored and kept up. Awesome to see how they lived. A must see !. When you buy the ticket for the Cathedral buy the ticket for this museum as well.

An amazin collection of paintings, sculpture and historic information about those who have been Archbishops of Lima as well as the chapel in the second floor. Simply breathtaking.

The Archibishop Palace is very interesting attraction, beautiful outside and inside. I would recommend to buy the combined ticket Cathedral + Palace.

Could only view this building from the outside but it is stunning. Wonderfully ornate doors and the woodwork on the upper floor is magnificent. Buildings right next door to the Cathedral.

The building itself is very impressive from the outside with it's architectural design and those cool balconies. The inside is equally interesting and full of paintings and historical church artifacts. Check out the fancy staircase!
