The church and convent of Santo Domingo is located just 1 block away from Plaza Major in Lima and is well worth a brief visit if you have the time. Built in the 16th century, it's the only one containing a real, authentic steeple within it's grounds. The exterior is pink and overall, is not very impressive from the outside so you may just nonchalantly pass by it w/o knowing it. The interior is a different story, though. The interior and naïve is elegantly designed in gold and brass coloring. The tombs themselves are unique in that the dead's skulls are clearly visible from the center of them. This may or may not freak you out. If it does, escape to one of the many beautiful interior courtyards (if they're open!).
