Right next to the Cathedral of Lima is where the Archbishop lived. Beautiful museum fully restored and kept up. Awesome to see how they lived. A must see !. When you buy the ticket for the Cathedral buy the ticket for this museum as well.

An amazin collection of paintings, sculpture and historic information about those who have been Archbishops of Lima as well as the chapel in the second floor. Simply breathtaking.

Definitely worth visiting! Probably my favorite building in the square. Get the combo ticket to see the Cathedral with Pizarro's tomb and then come here. It's just very pretty and worth standing inside to see each room for yourself.

The ticket to see the archbishop's palace includes the adjacent cathedral, and the former gives you a look at living and working quarters of the head of the Catholic Church in colonial Peru.

They offer the combined tickets at the entrance to the Cathedral. Its better to purchase the tickets right there - that would help you to better manage your time.
