International Parishes & Churches Lima
Lima does not only have many historical churches to visit and admire, but also a lot of "normal" Houses of God, where the mainly catholic community can pray and live their religious life. These are quite often worth a visit. Even if your Spanish isn't perfect celebrating the Holy Mass especially on a religious day in one of these churches is amazing. You will find some international churches and denominations in Lima where you can attend church services for example in English, German or pray to "your" God.
