Iglesia San Francisco de Paula, Uquia

4.6
#5 of 17 in Historic Sites in Province of Jujuy
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.

  • The two-day Bolivia tour, which started in San Salvador de Jujuy, we came UQUÍA also in the nondescript village. At the entrance, I greeted two begging girls who had their photograph taken only against payment of gratuity. Great was my surprise when I discovered a beautiful "gold altar" in the small village church.
