San Pedro Church (Iglesia de San Pedro) Tours

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
