This church in the middle of old Lima keeps the image of El Señor de Los Milagros, the patron of Lima that goes on a procession once a year in the month of October every year attracting over a million followers.

To all Roman Catholics, this is one of the holiest shrines in the whole World! Right here, at the "Santuario Nacional y Monasterio de las Madres Nazarenas Carmelitas Descalzas de San Joaquín", the holy and miraculous wall painted by an Angolan slave depicting "Jesus Christ in the Cross of His Crucifixion" is kept at the main altar. This wall has survived intact earthquakes, many miracles have been attributed to it and, therefore, adored by all Catholics. It is known as the blessed "El Señor de los Milagros" ("The Lord of the Miracles", in English), the beloved Patron Saint of Lima. Every year, in the month of October, two huge processions leave "Las Nazarenas" and roam the streets of Lima, carrying a litter with a copy of the sacred wall. Touching moments in the lives of the Catholic peruvians. "Las Nazarenas" complex was built in the 18th century, in the rococo style and has been restored, many times, along the centuries. If you are visiting Lima during the month of October, entering "Las Nazarenas" may be almost impossible due to the absolutely endless queues. Around "Las Nazarenas", many shops and street vendors sell the "Turrón", a sticky sweet prepared specially for these festivities. Be ready for crowds in October! Enjoy!

We got to go in during the Christmas week so the services and choirs were amazing. We stayed through the whole service because it was so beautiful.

I struggle with this. Too many churches and cathedrals I think make me tired. All overly lavish. Yes it's well decorated and great to look at but aren't they all... If you enjoy this sort of thing then you should definitely visit otherwise there is nothing unique in this church. Another example of excessive wealth when the country was extremely poor.

This is another beautiful church in Lima. It was built in 17th century and faced a devastating earthquake in 1655. It was rebuilt after that. The paintings inside the church are beautiful. The painting of crucifixion looked best to me.

This is a small and beautiful church - very inviting. One is everything but overwhelmed and yet the intrinsic gold trappings and artful décor loom large. This is a must include visit on any tour of Lima.

Not always open so you ought to try to call. This is home to El Señor de Los Milagros and has a beautiful statue. Lots of gold leaf decorating the altar. I'd say it's a must see. Built n 1771 after great earthquake of 1746. Adored and prayed to as protector from earthquakes.

This is a small yet very beautiful church where the famous image of El Senor de los Milagros is housed. Unfortunately, it is so delicate, that it is not in display except in October. Nevertheless, it is a worth to stop by a this church.

Must be very impressive... if you can get inside. We were within opening jours but they were closed for no apparent good reason. We knocked and asked... and we’re simply asked to leave the premise. Quite frustrating as we observe El Señor de Los Milagros and came all the way from Canada

Before you read me, let me make you aware: I am catholic, maybe bias one my impression. I have visited many churches around the world and I had an special reaction when I entered to visit al Señor de los Milagros in October. This is a must if you are in Lima in October.
