Iglesia San Francisco de Paula, Uquia

4.5
#6 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.

  • small temple of silo 17TH. With pictures of the Angees harquebusiers, brought from Cuzco. Worth out of the way and take a look.

  • It is a small church that holds a priceless treasure. 9 images of the Ángeles Arcabuceros are magnificent. Photos may not be taken but offer a drop-down with pictures.

  • The Church of San Francisco de Paula was built in 1691 and also declared a national historical monument. American-style and with Jesuit influence, keeps the oldest altarpiece of region, Golden foil, wood and a treasure that is hard to beat: a series of paintings known as "Los ángeles arcabuceros", or "Nine Angels gentlemen", of Cuzco origin, that are there from mid-18th century. The angels are represented dresses such as the Spanish military wore at the time of Carlos II.
