Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Lima, Purmamarca

4.1
#2 of 18 in Historic Sites in Province of Jujuy
Visit an atmospheric place of worship at Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Lima, a colonial-era structure dating back to the mid-17th century. The church's whitewashed exterior is in keeping with the style of similar buildings from the same period, while the ceiling--made from local cactus plants--adds a rustic and aged charm to the interior. Step inside to find 17th-century paintings depicting scenes from the Bible and the history of Catholicism in the country, including episodes from the life of Santa Rosa de Lima, the first saint native to the New World. The church dominates the main town square along with an impressive tree, said to be more than a thousand years old.

  • Well maintained, this small church is simple but nice, nice wooden ceiling, with several paintings inside and an altar that is not ostentatious in front of the square 9 de Julio.

  • This church, very well maintained, dates from the late 1700s and is located in front of the main square of the town, is very beautiful and inside has some interesting paintings; another thing to note is the wooden ceiling. It is advisable to go around to get to know her.
