The Roman Catholic Metropolitan Archdiocese of Lima (Latin: Archidioecesis Limanus) is part of the Roman Catholic Church in Peru which enjoys full communion with the Holy See. The Archdiocese was founded as the Diocese of Lima on 14 May 1541. The diocese was raised to the level of a metropolitan archdiocese by Pope Paul III on 12 February 1546. One of its archbishops was the saint Torribio Mogrovejo.[1]

The suffragan dioceses are: Callao, Carabayllo, Chosica, Huacho, Ica and Lurin. Since 1999 the Archbishop of Lima is Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne. The Archbishop's Palace of Lima is the headquarters of the archdiocese.
