Iglesia y convento de La Merced

Recommended
The Iglesia y convento de La Merced form a unique architectural complex. The facade of the church features a superb crossbred Baroque-style portal, also referred to as Renaissance Inca, featuring arabesques, plants and sculptures, while the sobriety of the interior offers a striking contrast. During the visit, give into the magnificent Mudejar gallery of the huge 16C cloisters as you try and picture the first masses celebrated in Lima in this church.
