This place was to me a very big and positive surprise. A lot of history and do much well kept furniture, robes, jewels and head pieces worn by all the important archbishops that lived here. Very impressed and beautiful. Thanks

We didn’t get to tour inside, but even the exterior is a sight to behold. The detail in the balconies, was stunning. If even a quick visit, this building was astonishing.

Buy the combined ticket for the Cathedral next door at only S30 and visit both spots. The museum isn't as interesting as the cathedral, but it's a good way to see how the church officials lived in rich splendour compared with the local population. Lots...More

This was a nice little museum next to the palace and main cathedral. They had a fascinating two sided painting that you should see for yourself. There is an entrance fee to get in. Most people purchase the fee that includes the cathedral as well
