Tick off more of Lima’s scared buildings in less time on this 4-hour tour of three significant sanctuaries. Alongside your guide, you’ll visit the Church and Sanctuary of Saint Rose of Lima, and the Monastery of Santa Domingo, where two saints are laid to rest. See, too, the Sanctuary of Las Nazarenas, whose pastel exterior harbors the beloved 17th-century ‘Cristo Moreno' painting, and learn about Lima’s religious heritage. All entrance fees and hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
Depending on the departure time chosen at checkout, your tour begins with hotel pickup at either 8am or 2pm. In an air-conditioned vehicle, you’ll head straight to your first stop: the Monastery of Santa Domingo.
Stroll through the 17th-century sanctuary’s hallways and visit the resting places of two important saints, San Martin de Porres and Santa Rosa de Lima. Then, proceed to the Sanctuary of Saint Rose of Lima to learn about the residence of Isabel Flores de Oliva, considered America’s first saint.
Your tour culminates with a visit to the Sanctuary of Las Nazarenas, a grand and pastel-colored church that harbors Cristo Moreno, a painted depiction of Christ that has miraculously survived devastating earthquakes.
Hotel drop-off marks the conclusion of your tour.
