Iglesia Belén, Cajamarca

(4.5/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
Visit one of the city's architectural centerpieces at Iglesia Belén, whose colonial Baroque details include a flat facade, single nave, and columns in lieu of any towers. Built in the 18th century, the church features an edifice adorned with hand-carved hewn stone designs and arabesque lines, reminiscent of Moorish decor. Inside, light pours through stained-glass windows onto the gold-coated altar and paintings of religious scenes. To learn the full history, visit with a local guide or pick up an informative brochure in advance.

  • You need a guide for being able to repair all the details that presents, I'm sure that if you go on your own you would not understand them.

  • another of the churches that meet in Cajamarca. You can enjoy the architecture and the history goes with guide. Next have the Museum which was formerly a hospital, can know how they worked the doctors at the time of beginning of the 19 century (I think, I don't remember the antiquity). It also has an exhibition of paintings and frames.

  • Included part of the monumental complex Bethlehem (former hospital of males). A temple of Baroque style with a curious façade carved in stone. The Church was founded in 1746.
