When visiting Plaza de Armas, cut across the park past the fountain and head over to the cathedral of Santa Rosa. Please make sure that you take the tour as there is so much history to learn that you will miss if you just walk through it. We took the English tour and the young lady was very fluent and... More

The guide had an impressive knowledge of history and the Cathedral. Don´t miss the little café in the inner courtyard, a lovely quiet oasis from the busy city.

A church that was destroyed and rebuild 3 times. It amazed me with the collections from before 18th century and are well kept for displayed. A lot of Mother Mary displayed here and see how they honour her with such beautiful art works. I also discovered that Mother Mary appear in Isreal and Barcelone Spain - both places I visited... More

It was worth going to see. If nothing else for the art, history, and architecture. Inside you will find the crypt of Santa Rosa of Lima, courtyard with a fountain and gardens, historic library and artwork, and ornate wood work. It is beautiful in its own way

Seria melhor se houvesse uma explicação dentro do convento. It would be better if there where some kind of information about the visit.

The Lima Cathedral was nicely presented, with guides available for a tip or a helpful, language-specific information sheet available for free. I thought the catacombs were neat and interesting, as I had never seen anything like them before in a cathedral. The entrance fee was 10 soles per person. There were free bathrooms, a tea stand, and a gift shop... More

I must be honest and say it was about 4 years ago that I was in Lima, but a spent a few months there and having also visited the Cathedral, the Monastery of San Francesco and etc... the peaceful and well maintained air of piety surrounding this particular site was refreshing and made it one of my Lima highlights.

It is located in an awfull location and it seems it is not very well kept. It is important to see for religious people for what it represents....you can see for instance a small house where the saint used to live
