Lovely balcony

One of the trademarks of lima colonial style building. The balconies are wonderfully crafted. You can see it from plaza de armas.

We just loved the exterior balconies on this splendid building in the Plaza de Armas in Lima. Probably my favourite building in the square. You can obtain a joint ticket for the archbishop's palace and the cathedral museum for 30s. Inside was thoughtfully renovated and displayed as a museum. Definitely recommend.

This is the most beautiful church that I ever visited. We go to mass whenever we are in Central Lima. You have to visit if you come to lima.

This is a beautiful building with beautiful wooden balconies. Located on the Main square so you see it when visiting there. Also seen at night lightly light up is a pretty sight.

This is part of the main Cathedral on the Plaza de Armas square. If you buy the full ticket it gives you access into the Cathedral, the museum and the Palacio Arzobial. I would not miss it. Very enjoyable and worth the fee. The staircase is just fantastic and at the top you have this magnificent glass ceiling. Very beautiful.... More

Next to the cathedral on the central square, it is a beautiful building with an impressive ancient architecture.It hosts many religious treasures and part of the history of the colonial period in the country. It has very beautiful rooms and a private chapel. Entering a little expensive, but worth it.

When you enter the museum, you immediately see the staircase with the beautiful stained glass ceiling. Apparently a guided tour is included in the price, but we had to specifically ask for it.

When entering the cathedral next door we purchased a combination ticket giving us entry to both attractions. The price was slightly high (30 sol each) but just about worth it. The archbishops palace is full of old, imposing religious artefacts, very impressive even though it's not my style of art. Upstairs are beautiful rooms with lavish furniture. Much of the... More

Again, here is yet another picturesque palace that Lima has to offer. Like the others, it is situated in the Plaza de Armas. There is an intriguing design in which 2 front sections (towards the middle floor of the building) are made of wood. Is it oak?
