  • We arrived when it was almost close to close, so we were almost alone enjoying the beauty and tranquility of that place. It may not be the largest or the prettiest church, but it is undoubtedly an unforgettable church. It is located in the historic center of Lima, near the Plaza de Armas and has several Catholic relics.
