We visited the San Pedro Church on our walking tour of historic downtown Lima, booked on the Holland America ship Volendam. This is a beautiful church and certainly worth seeing. There is so much history in this city.

This church, its cloisters, and it’s catacombs are definitely worth your time. It’s a short walk from the main plaza in Lima and gives tours in several languages at least every hour. The church is dazzling, the cloisters and their paintings opulent, and the catacombs suitably creepy.

The church is very nice and impressive also from outside. All the churches in Lima have a lot of character.

This is possibly one of the most ornate and beautiful churches that I have ever been in. It's just gorgeous inside, lots of baroque gold leaf, and Spanish Seville tiles. Of all the churches in the downtown area near the Plaza de Arma, this is the one that I felt was the most beautiful. Take 10-15 min of your time and walk around the inside, it is well worth it.

Built in the colonial period of the 1600's, this church has beautiful wood carvings and huge Baroque alters throughout the interior. Worth a brief visit if you are in the area.
