  • One of the places with more history, religious in Peru. It is the House of the Paxhacamilla Christ is Lord of miracles the more popular cult Peruvian and one of the most important processions in the world. Mandatory visiting Lima as well as tourists. If it coincides with the month of October there are many people, but the visit is much more interesting you can breathe and touch the popular faith.

  • Although the Sagrada image of the Lord of miracles you can see throughout the year, it is during October when you find more religious as part of the massive procession fervor. They have masses every hour and it can be arranged groups in parishes which allows hear the looking forward and at the end allow you to get closer to the anda. A mystical experience like no other!

  • Thank you Señor De Los Milagros for all the daily miracles you give to all of us. Watching nazarenas tv takes me back home, my beautiful Lima, my hometown UV#3. It is a blessing.
  • Also called Senor de los Milagros (Lord of Miracles), after the painting of Christ made on a wall by an angolan sclave in the XVIth c. Was spared by the major 1655 earthquake. This major shrine is held by the Carmelite order. The present church dates from 1771. Main celebrations in October every year.
  • My first day in Lima with much anticipation. Was extremely tired after a long-haul flight, but couldn't help going out exploring when the delightful church bells rang out. (Sep 2015)
