  • 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)
  • Very beautiful place in the world!
  • Interesting story.
