Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus, Arequipa

(4.7/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • 這座教堂也被稱為“耶穌陪伴教堂”,正門外巴洛克式的雕刻,堪稱是南美洲最具代表性的殖民地建築傑作之壹。教堂使用來自米斯蒂火山采石場的原料,巖石多孔而且潔白。據說這類巖石不好雕刻,難怪要修建個百年左右!回廊周邊的空間現在給店面出租,基本都是羊駝織品的販售商店。  more »
