Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Lima, Purmamarca

4.2
#3 of 17 in Historic Sites in Province of Jujuy
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • It's hard to miss this cool white church in the center of town. Worth stopping by to check it out. I also enjoyed the old tree in the courtyard.
  • Get up early. Cross the square. Get to the parish. Sit in silence. Observe carefully. Feel. Beautiful experience.

  • It is simple, austere and small but warm, homely and very cute. Its architecture follows the style of all the people, with irregular walls of adobe. It runs in a short time, is in the main square so it is stop mandatory.
