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.

  • Classical Church of Spanish architecture with large courtyards, has areas where there are paintings or pieces to show tourists. In addition, work office you should go with the ticket that one buys in the room of the rescue.

  • Cajamarca churches are very impressive in its façade, but inside are somewhat disappointing. In any case, it is worth entering. The entrance costs 5 Suns and allows entry to the Church, the rescue and other museums.

  • The Church of Bethlehem and all the architectural complex is a must in Cajamarca. Both the exterior and the interior of the Church are stunning.

  • 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.
