Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Lima, Purmamarca

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.

  • The villages of origin Cologne will always have their little church. This is very nice. Note that the village was always lacking in many respects, so much that his Church is of the humblest of the region. But that does not detract from the effort and care they give to it: is beautiful.

  • A very small church which has step of the Spaniards in these parts. The Church has some very old objects, such as a confessional that dates back to the time of the Spaniards and some paintings.

  • This small church dating back to the time of the Viceroyalty, evokes the tradition and antiquity of the era in which it was created. Its wide walls 1 meter in thickness and the simplicity with which was decorated like the interior finishes with pictures and minimalist decor, make this a place where you travel back in time and deserves more than to be visited.

  • Very beautiful little church.
  • 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.
  • A sober and pure austere decoration, its Spanish tile roof colonial Chapel is supported by wood goats. Very well maintained. A gem.

  • 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.
