Iglesia de Santa Rosa de Lima, Purmamarca

4.1
#3 of 17 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.

  • Its simplicity makes it very beautiful, a feeling of peace and humility can be seen in its architecture. It is very well preserved and visiting it is a way to spy on our past, since the General Belgrano and Guemes communed and confessed under this roof before risking his life defending the ideals of freedom.

  • It was built in the 17TH century and declared a national historic monument in 1941. Beautiful in its simplicity, built with local materials, is now in perfect condition. I emphasize the oil paintings that adorn the sides of his single ship, belonging to the Cuzco School of painting and representing episodes of the life of Santa Rosa de Lima, patron of the place.

  • Is not one more among the small churches of the quebrada de Humahuaca, the landscape that surrounds it, makes it unique!

  • 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.
