The library at San Francisco Monastary is exhuisitely well preserved. The highlight of the library is the set of gorgeous, tightly spiraled staircases on each side.
One of Lima's most impressive churches is the church and convent at Plaza San Francisco. Besides visiting the church proper be sure to take the convent tour.
Note the beautifyl facade. Also note all the doves that are resting there.
(Outside the church there are people selling grains to the tourists to feed the doves, so the doves will stay ...)

one of the rare buildings not destroyed by 1746 earthquake.
worth while a visit inside for its paintings,cloister and catacombs (60000 burials)
a well preserved colonial building.

The tours of the San Francisco Church include the catocombs below, full of some 70,000 skeletal remains. Not for the squeamish.
This is the location of the famous Catacombs. Go into the basement (watch your head) and see centuries of human bones. Very interesting
