  La Merced
by SirRichard

This colonial church is maybe nicer inside than outside, tough its fron facade is outstanding. But as it is in a narrow street you can't really appreciate it at its best.
In this church (at the original one) took place the first mass ever in Lima (1534).

Address: Jiron de la Union and Miro Quesada
Directions: at the corner

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
