  • This will an amazing church to visit in Lima. It is about a 2 minute walk from the plaza. There were quite a bit of people when I visited. Pictures are allowed in the main sanctuary but not in the rest of the cathedral. The catacombs were great and they estimate 25,000 people were buried there. The sanctuary is free, but to your the rest of the building is 10 soles for adults and 5 for children. I would highly recommend a short stop here!
  • Quaint church tucked away at the end of a lane. Very beautiful
  • Jesuit basilica XVIth c.
  • ok
  • Free to go in
