This is a huge plaza with grand sandstone palaces, churches all around. The wooden balconies are striking. The conquistadors knew how to establish their dominance.

A great break from the sun outside, the Archbishops Palace is a little expensive compared to others in the area, but it is worth it. The architecture is amazing, with large selection of relics and history keeping you engaged throughout the tour. Sadly all information...More

The Archbishops Palace, just off Plaza Mayor in Lima, features the renown Archbishop's balcony, one of the famous balconies in Lima. It's also quite spectacular inside and outside, and is surrounded by other interesting and photogenic buildings. Definitely worth you time to visit.

The carved wooden balconies at the Archbishop's Palace are gorgeous. Taking a guided tour will help you understand and admire the history of this place.

Beautiful old building on the main square (plaza mayor). Inside it's still arranged as a living residence rather than just as a museum, so is a fascinating look at life in old Lima. US$10 entry. Guided tours are available if you have time.

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

The Palace is another gem of a building in the Plaza de Armas but what draws ones attention is those balconies which are quite impressive made of wood and truly stand out from the rest of the architecture. The bishop resides there and it has...More
