Iglesia San Francisco de Paula, Uquia
(4.6/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • The curious thing about this place is the silver Church key, and two urban legends there is a that if you take away the touching 10 years and another that is the key to leave the problems, the market square the cheapest of the area

  • It really is a church located at this location, which is very small. the more striking of the same is the elegant antique it. This the original key that was used to open the door. is super long. It has openings with quisios, from there created the expression "I got from quisio". the same, by touching it you can make a wish. What is highly attractive are the pictures of angeles them Arquebusiers. they carry weapons and wear below the knee pants or skirts of the same length, followed by socks and European shoes tied with a bow. does that mean this? that they reflect the Gospel but also the army Spanish to submit, in a way, the locals to evangelize is. they are juxtaposed images not seen in any church I've visited. artisans outside fair is excellent! super friendly people, partner with a variety of merchandise and requests. I recommend the rest Hill ladies before visiting the Church. handmade, typical and excellent service.

  • I visited the Quebrada de Humahuaca awhile back with relatives. There are several attractions and places to be seen, but the Iglesia San Francisco de Paula in Uquia is a must. This Church holds the famous colonial screens of Ángeles Arcabuceros, beautiful art cusquenha representation of angels warriors, like St. Michael, St. Gabriel, and St. Raphael.
