You need not go in to admire the carved wooden balconies that the Archbishop's Palace has on his facade. They are a masterpiece and not the only ones in this plaza. Take your time, and walk around. Each balcony is name after their function. For...More

It's hard for me to comment or write a review as I'm not really into religion. But must say it is an amazing building and I enjoyed seeing it.

This place was to me a very big and positive surprise. A lot of history and do much well kept furniture, robes, jewels and head pieces worn by all the important archbishops that lived here. Very impressed and beautiful. Thanks

We didn’t get to tour inside, but even the exterior is a sight to behold. The detail in the balconies, was stunning. If even a quick visit, this building was astonishing.

The Archbishop's Palace was completely reconstructed and renovated in 1924 and is the residence of the Archbishop of Lima. The two large balconies, carved from cedar wood reflect the sensuality of the building.

The current building was designed during the early twentieth century and the facade is made up of baroque elements and impresive ornate balconies. The Palace is the residence of the Archbishop of Lima, and the administrative headquarters of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lima.

This is worth a visit, though there isn't any signage in English, so can take longer if you aren't fluent in Spanish. Still worth seeing though as all the rooms are set up as they were used.

Buy the combined ticket for the Cathedral next door at only S30 and visit both spots. The museum isn't as interesting as the cathedral, but it's a good way to see how the church officials lived in rich splendour compared with the local population. Lots...More
