(4.6/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Admire the Baroque artistry of Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus, a historic place of worship in Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Construction began in 1576, though the building was severely damaged during an earthquake in the mid-17th century. Rebuilt two decades later, the church displays an attractive architectural style, while the interior boasts an impressive main altar covered in gold leaf, an atmospheric underground chapel, and a collection of original artworks dating back to the colonial era.

  • It is worth visiting it with a guide. It has much history in addition adornments have all their meanings. They keep it very well and carvings are impressive.

  • The Jesuit church in Arequipa is located close to the Central Plaza de Armas and worth a visit. Colonial style is in good condition and well worth a visit.
