Some sites say this is free but in fact you have to pay approx USD $3 - this gives you access to the museum inside the Cathedral. There is a $10 ticket if you want to do the adjoining Archbishop's Palace as well. We did not, and were in the Cathedral for about 2 hours. This is our preferred time frame so as to not get over saturated and unappreciative. Pisarro's chapel is totally mosaic covered, an incredible time consuming work of art, altho we did think it a bit odd to celebrate such a conquistador! All the side chapels - and there are lots of them (14 apparently) - have a note as to which saintly replica is on display. Beautiful ornately carved wooden choir. And if you're not claustrophobic you can go down to some excavated tombs. And just when you think you're done: there's a museum behind the choir containing holy paintings, articles, vestments and all sorts of religious paraphanelia. Upstairs there's a small exhibition of calligraphy and a model of the cathedral.
