Trip Planner: South America / Argentina / Northern Argentina / Province of Jujuy / Uquia / Iglesia San Francisco de Paula
Duck in for a quick visit to Iglesia San Francisco de Paula, a small, unassuming church located in a quiet village. Constructed from adobe in an American style, the church dates back to the 17th century. Head inside to see to the intricately-carved altar of wood and gold leaf. Once inside, pay special attention to the colonial-era paintings of the arcabuseros angels, brought from Cusco. Leave your camera at home, as the church does not allow photography.

It is touching to see in that temple the paintings of Baroque art depicting the Archangels, I understand only well preserved in America. The impeccably maintained of that temple and the richness of that high altar is what excites you the most. You have to visit, you won't regret it.
Muy bien conservada con sus paredes de adobe, el altar está tallado a mano en madera y dorado. Lo más llamativo en su interior tiene una de las dos únicas colecciones del país de Angeles Arcabuceros, ... more »Very well preserved with its adobe walls, the altar is hand-carved in wood and gold. The most striking inside has one of the only two collections of the country of Angeles Arcabuceros, paintings made in the seventeenth century by indigenous people.
It has an excellent artistic heritage, which is worth knowing, especially the collection of Los Angeles Arcabuceros, although a part of the church is somewhat deteriorated with stains of moisture and having little lighting (at least that was when I visited) the pictures , especially the upper part of them, cannot be appreciated so clearly.
Beautiful experience! Read a little of the paintings of the Angels of the place
