I love visiting cemeteries. Often they are a great way to enjoy the artwork and symbolism.
It was hard to find a tour to Presbitero Mastro, but if you want to visit, do so with HAKU tours!
Two pieces of advice, keep up with the admission ticket. Several times while in the cemetery, was stopped and asked to see the ticket. The reason why is there has been damage and vandals in the cemetery and the current groundkeepers want to make sure that no harm is done. The second thing is to wait to pull your camera out after going inside the cemetery and not near the entrance (according to guides, the groundkeepers will some time want to charge you).
The tomb stones are truly amazing. The work that went into some of the graves will amaze you.
There is even a section where those who were tall and larger than average are buried.
There are over 20 Peruvian presidents buried here.
The hall of hero is amazing! It's only opened in limited times, but still peek inside to admire the greatness.
If you want to view a different side of Lima past history, this is a must!
