Iglesia de Santo Domingo
The pepper-pot belfry of Santo Domingo, one of Lima’s most historic churches, makes a rococo statement on Lima’s skyline. The interior has a neoclassical design in turquoise and sumptuous gold.

The church was completed in 1599, though it’s been rebuilt over the centuries following several earthquakes.

The grand church has three naves, several altars, chapels and shrines, and Peru’s oldest choir stalls. Paintings and Seville tiles decorate the main cloisters surrounding the tranquil central gardens.

Many visitors make the pilgrimage to the Iglesia de Santo Domingo to pay their respects to the Americas’ first black saint, San Martin de Porres. Santa Rosa de Lima also has a chapel in Santo Domingo.

Larco Museum and Lima Historic Center

In 2017, the Larco Museum was ranked as number 22 of the 25 Best Museums in the World, according to Tripadvisor’s Traveller’s Choice Awards. This marked the first time a Peruvian museum made the list. The Larco Museum was founded by archeologist Rafael Larco Hoyle, who spent his life investigating and protecting the vestiges of Peru’s northern, pre-Colombian cultures. Larco Hoyle not only treasured and catalogued the remains he found on his scientific explorations of the archeological sites on the north coast of Peru, but he also purchased numerous private collections. Today, the Larco Museum exhibits almost 45,000 objects from the Mochica, Virú, Chimú, and Sipán Cultures, as well as other, smaller cultures that populated pre-Incan Peru.
