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.

Truly a beautiful church. People watching around the square was interesting too. The catacombs, were a new experience for me. Don't know if I would want to do it again, but truly glad I did for the experience.
