Cathedral of Lima (Catedral de Lima) Tours

star-4.5
36 Reviews
The baroque twin-towered Lima Cathedral (Catedral de Lima) dominates the city's central Plaza de Armas with an elaborate exterior. Constructed in the 1530s but the victim of earthquake damage over the years, much of what is standing today dates back to 1746 when the site underwent a rebuilding program.

Step inside the huge cathedral via one of its three grand doors and you'll find a lofty interior of white and gold with soaring ribbed ceilings, mosaic chapels, and pillared aisles. See the many paintings that line the walls, and view the cathedral's main attraction: the elaborate marble tomb of Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro, who laid the structure's first stone in 1535.

Often visited on walking and sightseeing tours of Lima, the cathedral is a popular landmark in the palm-filled Plaza de Armas (check it out at night to see the church brilliantly illuminated with floodlights). Entry includes a guided tour and a visit to the cathedral's museum.

Practical Info

The Lima Cathedral (Catedral de Lima) is in the city center's Plaza de Armas. A pedestrianized street runs south of the cathedral to Plaza San Martin, and Lima's train station is two blocks north.
Address: Plaza de Armas, Lima 100, Peru
Admission: Varies
