The oldest church in Cusco, Church of San Blas (Iglesia de San Blas) dates back to the early 16th century. This adobe-style church may not impress you with its size, but its interior decorations certainly will. The real highlight is the pulpit, carved from a single tree stump and considered one of the most impressive pieces of woodwork in the Americas.

  • It is a small church built in "Adobe" or mud and straw bricks dried in the Sun and is located in the District of San Blas, (artists ' quarter). Simple facade but inside has a wonderful carved wooden altar covered with gold foil in Baroque style.

  • Visit Church erected on an Inca sanctuary in the city of Cusco in Peru, the Temple of San Blas, and the thing I found most beautiful in the world, a jewel of colonial art, is a pulpit in the Plateresque style dedicated to the Virgin of the good created by a called evanista event Juan Tomas Tuirutupac Inca. It has 1,200 pieces with 70 different Cedar filigree figures, consists of a baffle, backrest, lid and Base where this reflected the image of the Virgen del Buen Suceso and the evangelists Matthew, mark, John and Luke.
