Huancavelica

Built in the 17th century, the church’s front is truly impressive due to the contrast between its white prism-shaped towers and the baroque-style façade, crafted in Indian red volcanic rock. The interior is dominated by the altar decorated in the baroque style, and the pulpit and side altars covered in gold leaf are standout features. There are also beautiful paintings from the Cuzco and Huamanga schools.
