This is worth a visit, though there isn't any signage in English, so can take longer if you aren't fluent in Spanish. Still worth seeing though as all the rooms are set up as they were used.

Buy the combined ticket for the Cathedral next door at only S30 and visit both spots. The museum isn't as interesting as the cathedral, but it's a good way to see how the church officials lived in rich splendour compared with the local population. Lots...More

This was a nice little museum next to the palace and main cathedral. They had a fascinating two sided painting that you should see for yourself. There is an entrance fee to get in. Most people purchase the fee that includes the cathedral as well

The palace was very ornate and is just one of the many buildings that are in the plaza. The archeticture of the plaza presents various types of excellent buildings to see

This Palace is in a mixed style, neoclassic and barroque. It is located at Plaza Mayor and there is a museum inside and a entrance fee is necessary to pay.

This use to be the Archbishops Palace but it is now a museum. There is a fee to enter but you tour on your own pace. Several floors and lots of historical items and architecture.

This is nice place to go and see alongside the cathedral next door, there's a beautiful little church at the top of the stairs and many of the rooms are wonderfully preserved!

We took this in as the combination tickets which covered this place as well. But it was very interesting and there were lots of paintings and history there.

I bought the ticket that combined with the neighboring cathedral for a total of 30 soles, which was much more expensive than nearby attractions while offering less. The lower floor of the palace is devoted to rotating exhibits. When I visited, each room involved themes,...More
