The Santa Rosa Sanctuary and Church is a must visit location in Lima. Quiet courtyards, some fine examples of local art, the story of Saint Rosa and a wonderful old library make it a very special place.

A very nice church inside and out. You don't need a guide and it will only take about 10 minutes for a good look.

This used to be a cloistered nunnery for females and houses the "mercedes" of Saint Rose of Lima. It has intricate lamps, furniture of the period and beautiful naves in the church.
