Visiting the Archbishop's Palace at the Plaza de Armas
There were two important sites open to the public to visit at the famous Plaza de Armas. They were the Cathedral of Lima as well as the Archbishop's Palace. Since our city tour already took us to the cathedral two days earlier, we only had to visit the Archbishop's Palace (more of a mansion really) during our return to the square. What can I say? It was a wonderful religious museum.
What caught my attention was the grand staircase as soon as we entered the premises. We toured the place on our own although Spanish speaking visitors had guides if they so wished.
Admission was 20 soles per person or 30 soles for a combination ticket for both the cathedral next door and the Archbishop's Palace. Upon purchase of our tickets, we were given a guide and four postcards to remind us of our visit.
