I used to live in Lima and have been here a couple of times. The main draw is probably the catacombs. However, the remaining part of the tour shouldn’t be downplayed. The artwork and architecture is fascinating. My kids enjoyed the entire visit but may have liked the painting of the last supper with guinea pig the best.
The tour is recommended to see the underground crypts and get the explanations and history. Lovely building and well kept grounds. I would recommend this as an alternative to all the other touristy stuff in Lima
