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

  • Wonderful part of Lima history. Be sure to see the catacombs

  • Really nice cathedral! Worth visiting. However the center is under construction!

  • Started by Pizarro in 1535. Astonishing large and beautiful nave, chapels, and museum abounding in masterpieces. Renovated lighting.

  • This beautiful spot is at the heart of busy Lima. I was able to pray in the chapel but couldn't take pictures inside. The feeling of peace in the Church stuck with me though

  • One of the best historical places of Lima
