    Located in the square of France, a little away from the Plaza de Armas, is worth a visit. Blue and charming architecture, is very different from most churches of Lima. Worth the visit!!

    A beautiful church in a nice square. Obviously the thing to emphasize is the weird "azul" that is painted. Even the surrounding area, in my opinion, is the best in the town. Colorful colonial houses, outside the super-touristy, with small shops selling second-hand dealer selling, mostly, old books and prints. To be revalued.

    The brightly coloured gem is tucked away amongst the hustle and bustle of town. Please stop and rest in their attached park and feel free to worship as well
