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 center of Lima abounds with buildings like this, they all have intricate balconies, and this one could not be any different. In front of the Plaza de Armas and next to the Cathedral de Lima, the beauty and splendor of this kind of architecture,...More

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.

The palace was very ornate and is just one of the many buildings that are in the plaza. The archeticture of the plaza presents various types of excellent buildings to see

This Palace is in a mixed style, neoclassic and barroque. It is located at Plaza Mayor and there is a museum inside and a entrance fee is necessary to pay.

This use to be the Archbishops Palace but it is now a museum. There is a fee to enter but you tour on your own pace. Several floors and lots of historical items and architecture.
