Iglesia San Francisco de Paula, Uquia

(4.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I had been happy to have a guide but not found. Uquia is a village in the broken but not is one more... has a charming special. We arrived at it by chance and just in time for the opening of tourist season. Was a ceremony beautiful! There was dancing, gifts, food... we were very few tourists and the local community made us feel super feted
