Iglesia de Yanahuara ( San Juan Bautista), Arequipa

(4.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to 1750, Iglesia de Yanahuara ( San Juan Bautista) represents an old stone church and popular wedding spot. The ornate church was built in a distinct Andean Baroque style that uses South American decor patterns on European-type buildings. Observe the church’s famed stone facade, done in a fine Ashlar masonry style and using sillar, a pearly white volcanic rock popular in Arequipa. The church is meters away from the district's iconic observation deck. While you’re admiring the structure you may see a wedding party heading to or from the church.
