The house, now Sanctuary Sep 01, 2014
Es el lugar donde nació y creció la Santa. Como el padre de Rosa, Gaspar Flores, trabajaba en la Guardia de Honor del Virrey, tuvo necesidad de alquilar una pequeña casa que se encuentra ubicada cerca del Palacio de Gobierno, en este lugar la Santa trabajaba 12 horas diarias para atender las necesidades de la familia que eran muy humildes, así como en la enfermería que implementó en la casa.

A partir del día de su muerte, el local comenzó a ser objeto de reuniones de la población con la finalidad de hacer oración y encomendarse a ella, motivo por el cual muchos de los devotos se comprometieron a cancelar el arriendo del inmueble. El 7 de febrero de 1669, Andrés de Villela, caballero de la Orden de Santiago y del Consejo de su Majestad, compró la casa, donándola luego a los religiosos del Convento de Santo Domingo con la finalidad que la convirtieran en Capilla y Santuario. Los fieles por respeto a la casa y huerto en que habitó Santa Rosa, no se atrevieron a demolerla, tratando siempre de conservarla, aunque construyeron una Capilla en las habitaciones, respetando siempre el Jardín donde habían crecido por primera vez en Lima los rosales, conservaron también la Ermita; los adornos de las capilla fueron hechos con tapices damascos, brocados, llenaron las paredes con exvotos, ofrendas dedicadas a la divinidad en agradecimiento de un beneficio recibido, todos ellos fueron de oro y plata, lamentablemente en la actualidad no podemos admirarlos porque fueron entregados debido a la "ley de recojo de plata" cuando sucedieron las últimas guerras.

It's the place where Saint Rose was born and raised. As Rosa's father, Gaspar Flores, was working in the Guard of Honor of the Viceroy, had need to rent a small house that was located near the Government Palace, in this place she worked 12 hours a day to attend the needs of family who were very humble as well as the nursing implemented in the home.

From the day of her death, the place began to be discussed at meetings of the population in order to make prayer and entrusted to her, which is why many of the devotees pledged to cancel the lease of the property. On February 7, 1669, Andres Villela, knight of the Order of Santiago and of the Council of His Majesty, bought the house, then donating it to the religious of the Convent of Santo Domingo in order to turn into the Chapel and Sanctuary. The faithful, respecting the home and garden that dwelt Santa Rosa, did not dare to demolish it, always trying to keep it, but built a chapel in the rooms, while respecting the Garden where had grown for first time in Lima the roses, they retained hermitage also; the ornaments of the chapel were made with tapestries damasks, brocades, filled the walls with votive offerings dedicated to the divinity in recognition of a benefit received, all were of gold and silver, unfortunately at present we can not admire them because they were delivered by "silver pickup law" when happened the last wars.
