San Pedro de Andahuaylillas (Sistine Chapel of America), Andahuaylillas

4.7
Dubbed the Sistine Chapel of America and built in the 16th century, San Pedro de Andahuaylillas (Sistine Chapel of America) hides within a quaint village but is a sight to behold. Judging from the simple brick and adobe exterior, the structure appears to be just an unassuming church, but once you step inside its nickname becomes clear. Baroque frescoes line the walls of the church, each depicting a part of the region’s history or representing an important part of the culture. The ceilings showcase Mudejar-style paintings, which involved cane, straw, and mud mediums. Even the altar impresses visitors with its gold, silver, and mirrored surfaces throughout.

  • Take the Cusco to Puno's light bus, the first stop of the scene, the tour will be in the interpretation of history and culture, the appearance of Pot reality, the inner part of the beautiful. Outside the stalls trafficking area, very good to stroll, friends here to buy some camel horse puppet.

  • One of the churches which possess Andean Baroque décor. The ceilings and walls are a work of art in itself and the organs are very ancient. I recommend that they pay attention to every sector. Photos are not allowed and a cd with them will gives you input.

  • It is bad that you cannot take photos inside. The place is gorgeous, be sure to go with a guide. Mornings are good times to visit, in the afternoon there are a lot of buses coming from Puno  more »
