Church and Sanctuary of Saint Rose of Lima, Lima

4.2
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.

  • It is more than a simple Church, within this space is the House and outbuildings where lived this santa. It allows to know the history and vicissitudes of this colonial santa.
