  • Despite having been incomplete for a reason I do not understand, this is a beautiful church, simple and stately, solemn and simple; a church to sit awhile and think.

  • It is next to the hotel costa del sol, facing the plaza de armas and close to all shopping.

  • It is located in the historic centre of Cajamarca, in front of the Plaza de Armas. It is a large colonial building (17TH century) Baroque style; its facade stands out because it harmoniously combines columns, cornices and hornacinas finely carved into volcanic rock. An important detail: lacks of towers. Inside stands the High Altar and the pulpit, carved in wood and covered with gold leaf.
