This is a colonial convent church in the historical centre of Lima. In front of the church is a beautiful courtyard with exquisite tile-work. Inside the church are wooden carvings and old frescos. The lights are dim and the air is cold. Guides will take you through the history and the mythology of the region, as they lead you from one artwork to another. Ornate sculptures lead you to the dark wood altar. The stairs are wooden and the roof is high. No wonder the acoustics in this place are amazing. Highlights include:
- The Last Supper painting.

- The old well
- The Library
- Museum of Viceregal Art
