  • Emblematic place of the center of Lima, that is part of the tour that one can realise walking from the square of arms, the Church of Santo Domingo and Santa Rosa, you can appreciate where lived the first saint of America, the wells of the desires and to the front is the house where it resides or San Martín de Porres, the saint of the broom
