Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy, Lima
(4.8/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
Marvel at the grand 16th century architecture of Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy. Originally constructed of wood, the church now features a baroque facade that was carved from adobe and brick in 1591. Inside you'll find works of art decorating the walls, stone arcades and columns, and a statue standing in the middle of the church. The artwork hanging on the wall tells the story of the church’s founder, Fray Muguel de Orenes, whose remains are housed in the church. Put Basilica of Our Lady of Mercy and other Lima attractions into our Lima holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A beautiful Basilica, located in the center of Lima. In addition, a Basilica with a great history, like the magpie father. Many years old and with beautiful ornaments. And many more stories.
