Iglesia De Santa Catalina - Historical Building Juliaca - Peru

Built by the Jesuits (1649-1774), Iglesia de Santa Catalina is a beautiful example of mestizo baroque architecture. The rough-hewn stone exterior has a single bell tower. Within, the single nave’s walls are lined with chapels displaying saints dressed in richly embroidered clothing. Spanish, religious and indigenous symbols are carved into the barrel-vault ceiling. The temple’s paintings have silver and gold sculptured insets and frames. Especially striking is the painting in the left wing of the transept, which depicts the crucified Christ with the three Maries, guarded by two silver angels.
