Basilica Cathedral de Lima (Peru)

We didn’t get a chance to enter this beautiful Roman Catholic Church, but we spent some time in the Plaza Mayor across the street.  The construction started on this building in 1535.  The construction was completed three years later in 1538 and has been remodeled since a few times.

It was very disappointing that every church is Lima would charge you to enter (just to look) and wouldn’t allow photography….  Ugh!!!!   Anyway, it was cool to look at from the outside.

To get an idea of scale, look closely at the cars and people in front of the building.  Cool stuff!!
