At Museo Palacio Arzobispal, see the grand residential palace of the archbishop and the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lima. Built in a colonial Baroque style designed by prominent Polish-Peruvian architect Ricardo de Jaxa Malachowski, the structure features an imposing stone facade, topped with a statue of the Archdiocese's patron saint, Turibius of Mongrovejo. Pay special attention to the ornate cedar balconies over the main doors, from which the archbishop addresses the public. Take an audio tour--available in both English and Spanish--to see the ornate interior, complete with marble staircase and French stained glass windows.

  • This museum an impressive collection of cusquenha school. The collection is very well organized and the audio guides pass the essentials for tourist transport on a trip through time. Not to be missed!

  • Palace Museum with religious overtones, here is a collection of paintings, as well as the famous stones in the walls. Pretty expensive ticket, impression-average, but maybe someone will like.

  • It was a small museum, many of the pieces on loan elsewhere and no signage with explanations. I did not find it worthwhile
