    The Municipal Palace of Lima is located in the historic centre of Lima in the plaza de Armas. As well as surrounding buildings such as the Cathedral and Archbishop's Palace have you modifications and renewals by earthquakes that plague the area. The current structure was built between 1943 and 1944 - during the Government of Marshal Oscar R. Benavides. The facade if something stands out are her towards the plaza de Armas and the unmistakable yellow wooden balconies.
