Peru has not only 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 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 Peru where you can attend church services, for example, in English, German, or pray to “your” God.
