Municipal Palace of Lima

Peruvian Opulence In The Heart Of Its Capital

The unmistakable pale yellow exterior and French colonial influences of Lima’s Municipal Palace make it one of the country’s most recognisable landmarks, possibly coming a close second to the world-famous Machu Picchu. Although the original Municipal Palace sustained earthquake damage, it was re-built in 1944 and sits in the heart of Peru’s capital. 
Visitors are welcome to explore the interior of the palace which is open between 8am and 4pm, and admission is free of charge. While the exterior exudes Franco charm, the interior is opulent, with two marble staircases and a library housing over 15,000 books.
