The Friday night Mass was very welcoming and beautifully done. Beautiful, spiritual place and event. I stepped in with my Goddaughter and unexpectedly found the Mass. It was a great experience together.

This Church is located in the heart of Lima. It is also next to a museum where the charge is 15 soles to get in. The church is rich in history.

We really enjoyed our visit to this old church. It is large, with a lot of interesting decorations in both the altar area and the side chapels.

I'm not sure when this church is actually open, probably only during mass times. However, there is a smaller side chapel that's open most days and from there, you can get a small glimpse of the church through the closed doors. There's also a courtyard...More

Our guide said it was just one of the plain church's & gave us 5 minutes. Unfortunately she had to wait much longer, it is beautiful.

The interior of this church will astound you. Each of the side alters are magnificent works of art by themselves. Taken together with the central nave and main alter, it will leave you in awe.
