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.
