Church and Sanctuary of Saint Rose of Lima, Lima

(4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Saint Rosa serves as the primary patroness of Peru and of the indigenous peoples of Latin America, making Church and Sanctuary of Saint Rose of Lima an important stop to learn more of the country’s religious history. The red-and-white church is built on the spot where Saint Rosa was born and the home that she turned into a hospital for the poor. She earned sainthood by dedicating her life to helping the needy and sick--you'll see the statue of this remarkable woman standing outside. Visit this grand church to learn more about her life and legacy; enter to admire the manicured gardens and make a wish in the wishing well.

  • Three saints have their stories tied to this church and convent. Saint Rose of Lima the most famous, the lady of the flowers, a beautiful story. The church is beautiful, more like a cathedral 
  • That cute Santa Rosita welcoming us on our first day at the beautiful and warm Lima, land blessed by God.
