- Santa Rosa is a much-worshipped figure in Peru; today, her house is a sanctuary that serves as a testimony to her life. The hermitage that she built has been conserved in the garden, and so has the well into which she threw the only key to a chain that she wore round her waist as a sign of penitence. She was declared a saint in 1671 by Pope Clement X. This church was built in her honor in 1670, next to the large house where she was born in 1586.
