Iglesia de Belen, Cajamarca

(4.4/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
Visit one of the city's architectural centerpieces at Iglesia de Belen, 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.

  • The Nativity Church is one of the most beautiful that has the city of Cajamarca by its architecture and decorations inside; all this worked in stone, the main altar coated in gold leaf, has the sculpture of the Holy Family and the dome is one of the largest works of art where you can see to the angels, archangels, Cherubim and Seraphim.
