The Sanctuary of Las Nazarenas is a church in Lima and is the site of the Peruvian Catholic procession of the Lord of Miracles, Señor de los Milagros, who is also the patron of the city. It was constructed together with the Monastery of Nazarenas in 1771, after a major earthquake in 1746.
From this church begins America's most important religious procession on October 18 and 28.
