  • Seek out a place for respite in this busy downtown area. The church is very well maintained. It also a peaceful place to sit and reflect for awhile.  more »
  • The area around the altar is typically Spanish Baroque in style with fine work in gilded wood. It is remarkably simple without a lot of clutter which is otherwise not uncommon in this style of church.  more »
  • As anyone could imagine, this is a historic place to visit while appreciating the local community character.  more »

  • Beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Even so, I think that its facade it lacks to recover that touch "old architecture" that should have, perhaps by color that they have painted it... I think they should try to keep it as original as well as happens with the Cathedral of Lima.
