You would go into a room they would explain what it was and then go in another direction, barely giving you the time to appreciate it. The stuff at the entrance was... More

I am so over churches! However its obligatory. There are so many in Lima This was the opulent one and at least interesting from that perspective. We were told no one goes there.

It has nice frescos as tiles imported from Sevilla, Spain in the colonial times....you may visit the catacombs ....major altar ...it's worth to eat Peruvian food in restaurants in front of this church.

Lots of great artwork, the interior is nearly fully-restored and incredible. Very historic and definitely worth a visit.

This church is a delight and very much used. The confessionals are in constant use. There are often services - I was present for a celebration of a marriage anniversary and it was full of flowers.
