  • Located next to the Plaza de Armas, it is a small church compared to the majestic cathedral but with a beautiful facade carved in chirrigueresque stone. Inside an exquisitely carved and gold-panelled main altar worth seeing

  • Hello, visit made with our guide, as usual; Nice building, in town with a neat decoration; what we liked the most was this inner courtyard with fountain, with a secure floor where you can go around. Very nice views of these snow-capped mountains and volcanoes, a small bar, restaurant and as in Lima a model who made pictures

  • The facade is intricately carved and the interior is filled with baroque details. Don't miss the small side chapel with its colorful wall paintings. It's definitely worth the small entrance fee.
  • Beautiful baroque church from the XVI century.
