Basilica Cathedral of Lima, Peru

Lima, Peru - June 12, 2016: The Basilica Cathedral of Lima is a Roman Catholic cathedral located in the Plaza Mayor of downtown Lima, Peru. Construction began in 1535, and the building has undergone many reconstructions and transformations since. It retains its colonial structure and facade. It is dedicated to St John, Apostle and Evangelist. In keeping with the majority of cathedrals the front facade has three large doorways. The main or central gateway is called the Portada del Perdón or the 'door of forgiveness'. Above the doorway is the Peruvian seal and the phrase 'Plus Ultra' rather than Lima's coat-of-arms. The two high towers with spire of slate, are neoclassical with stylistic influences of the school 'El Escorial' and of northern Europe.
