San Pedro Church (Iglesia de San Pedro)
Admire one of Lima’s—and Peru’s—most beautiful architectural buildings, the San Pedro Church (Iglesia de San Pedro). This 17th-century edifice was built during Peru’s colonial period and has been administered by the Jesuits since 1638. The ornate church features Moorish-style carvings, baroque altars, and glazed tiles.
 
The Basics

Peru is a unique place that combines Catholicism with a number of ancient traditions, and the San Pedro Church in Lima is a great place to experience this harmonious mix. Most city walking tours touch on the church’s architecture and history. For a more comprehensive understanding of Lima’s history, religion, and Peruvian traditions, take a private tour and explore some of the city’s other churches, top attractions, and lesser-known highlights.
 
Things to Know Before You Go

  • The San Pedro Church is a must-see for architecture lovers.
  • There is an underground crypt that dates back to the 1600s.
  • Admission to San Pedro Church is free.
 
How to Get There
The church is a short walk from Plaza Mayor down Jiron de la Union. There are also a number of city buses that reach the church from many points in the city; alternatively, take the metro to Jiron de la Union station.
 
When to Get There
San Pedro Church is open daily from 8:30am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm. Lima experiences its peak season during the summer, December to April, so visit outside of this time for a quieter experience.
 
A Reminder of the Past

The San Pedro Church has remained more or less intact since its construction in the 1600s. It is home to a large collection of colonial paintings, which you can see throughout the complex. The Jesuits have preserved it very well, allowing the church to become a major spiritual center—not just for Limeños but for all Peruvians.
Address: Jirón Azangaro 451, Cercado de Lima, Lima 15001, Peru
Admission: Varies
