Iglesia de Belen, Cajamarca
(4.4/5 based on 100+ 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.

  • 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.
