About Cathedral Of Lima, Lima
This is a Roman Catholic Cathedral. It is situated right in the middle of the city, bordering the Mayor’s Plaza of Lima. The Church was one of the many structures that were damaged by an earthquake in the mid-eighteenth century. A lot of it has been rebuilt and very similarly so. It retains the Spanish colonial structure and the facade. This facade has three heavily decorated doorways leading you into the church. The marble floor, the wooden benches, the cross-shaped pillars and the vaulted delicate ceilings transport you to the era when it was first built. The atmosphere is calm and serene. The lighting is dim and the air is cold. Highlights include:
- The Wooden Balconies.
- The Decorative Mosaics on the grave chapel.
- The tomb of Francisco Pizarro.
- The museum- artefacts of colonial times and displays of city’s historical heritage.
- The Souvenir Shop
- The choir stalls
- The Tea room

Cathedral Of Lima, Lima Reviews
Each cathedral inside the building is a great representation of the various artistic styles that have been applied to Lima's churches. Lots of history for all of South America to be learned here. Worth it to have a guide for the visit.
It was a beautiful tour of the cathedral has amazing architecture some great views of old alter vices and in the basement there's even a crypt with skulls
Not worth the cost of 30 soles, especially compared to the cathedral in arequipa which is much nicer.
I honestly have no clue why majority population of Indios should be proud to celebrate Piazzaro's grandeur but the purpose of showing enigmatic Peruvian reality works here. A must check.
