San Pedro Church (Iglesia de San Pedro)

Lima’s baroque Church of San Pedro was built in grand style by the Jesuits in 1638. The Jesuit Order’s premier church in Peru, it’s also one of the country’s finest buildings.

With its three naves and dome, the church features lovely glazed tiles and Moorish-influenced carvings.

Interesting tours reveal the history of the church and highlight its richly ornamented altars and chapels. The San Ignacio de Loyola chapel is the most highly decorated, and some prime colonial artworks hang in the chapels. The tour includes a visit to the underground crypt.

Practical Info

San Pedro Church is in central Lima, a few blocks southwest of Plaza de Armas. To get there, stroll down Jiron de la Union and turn onto Azangaro.
