Fodor's Expert Review Iglesia San Francisco

Ica Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Soaring ceilings, ornate stained-glass windows, and the fact that it's the only one of Ica's colonial-era churches left standing after the 2007 earthquake make this the city's grandest religious building. Yet even this colossal monument didn't escape the quake unscathed. If you look on the floor toward the front of the church you can see the gouges left in the marble blocks by falling pieces of the church altar. It's said that the statues of the saints stood serenely throughout the quake and didn't move an inch.
