A stunning church built by the Jesuits starting in the 16th century, Iglesia San Pedro (St. Peterâ€™s Church) is one of Limaâ€™s best-known landmarks. It is now a major visitor destination, as it features an impressive collection of fascinating colonial art. This church was built over the course of 200 years and as such contains a mish-mash of techniques and styles making it of particular interest to architecture students.
