Stunning Colonial Architecture
Attractions & Activities In Lima
Even a casual stroll around Lima’s colonial core will yield a profusion of noteworthy architectural sights. This part of the city, whose checkerboard-style layout was modeled on that of Seville, is awash with colonial trappings. You can’t turn a corner without encountering ornate arches, grand patios, courtyards and elaborately sculpted façades, which have, rather miraculously, managed to withstand fires, earthquakes and neglect.
Highlights include the Archbishop’s Palace, the Cathedral and the Sagrario Chapel, all located on the Plaza de Armas; the Santo Domingo Church on the Plaza de la Vera Cruz; and, most notably, the well-preserved San Francisco Convent, a colossal complex comprising three churches, a beautiful library containing extremely rare volumes and – most famously of all – catacombs, which feature the carefully arranged remains of an estimated 70,000 people.
