Luis Alberto Félix Sánchez Sánchez (* Lima, October 12, 1900 - Lima, February 6, 1994) was aPeruvian lawyer, jurist, philosopher, historian, and politician. A historic leader of the Partido Aprista Peruano, he became a Senator, President of the Senate, Vice President of the Republic and Prime Minister.
