Religious Art Museum in the Cathedral of Lima

While the immense Baroque Cathedral of Lima is a museum for itself, within the old sacristy and the adjoining rooms it houses an impressive Religious Art Museum. The museum displays a large collection of historical objects including paintings, sculptures, furniture, jewelry, sacred vessels as well as antique religious vestments and robes of former archbishops.

Guided tours not only lead through the museum but also through the whole church explaining the interesting history of the Cathedral and the importance of the Catholic Church in Colonial Peru. Definitely worth the visit!
