Cathedral Of Lima - Review

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

  • The Cathedral stands apart on one side of the Plaza de Armas with its grand architectural design. The building structure and the facade signify the colonial architecture while the the details in the facade bear Peruvian seal. Even though the building is a place of worship, it is difficult to miss the architectural details and the neoclassical influences. Definitely, lives up to the hype and enriches the experience of even a casual traveller.

  • An extraordinary historical monument. Big only is the building itself to of meaning, but the artwork it houses is stunning. Of course, the experience will depend on your guide, but the price of the entrance ticket is well written it.

  • It’s a great cathedral and very beautiful. The entry fee is reasonable at 10 soles per person.

  • 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.

  • Faustuoso e historico
