Well worth a visit! We explored her house and gardens. Don’t miss the little house she built and the well where people drop prayers in the courtyard. We were also able to celebrate Mass at 10am (Sunday).

The Santa Rosa Sanctuary and Church is a must visit location in Lima. Quiet courtyards, some fine examples of local art, the story of Saint Rosa and a wonderful old library make it a very special place.

This used to be a cloistered nunnery for females and houses the "mercedes" of Saint Rose of Lima. It has intricate lamps, furniture of the period and beautiful naves in the church.
