  • This church has very nice frescos on the ceiling. It is also the Lord of miracles. Although it seems weird to say it, especially here, it felt cozy.

  • A typical modern church in the central square of Iquitos. Visit is better in the evening, on the way to a nearby restaurant to see the beautiful illumination.

  • The Cathedral of iquitos is nice, cozy, not very large in contrast to other cathedrals, but decorate the landscape from the plaza de armas of iquitos, located in the heart of the city surrounded by restaurants, bars and squares.
