This used to be a cloistered nunnery for females and houses the "mercedes" of Saint Rose of Lima. It has intricate lamps, furniture of the period and beautiful naves in the church.

Rose of Lima is probably as well known as any saint from South America. Her life story is bizarre. She may well have been ingrained with the spirit of heaven, or she might have been plain "nuts". Regardless of what she was or was not,...More
