Iglesia de la Compañía, Arequipa, Peru

Built by the Jesuits, 1590 to 1698. Above, the famous entrance.


Overall view. The style of this church was very influential, and several others were built in the next century in this Indianized Baroque idiom.

In the cloisters.

Side entrance, now closed off.

Interior, including the gold-covered altar.

Ceiling of a side chapel.

St. James in glory.

Lovely photo from this blog, which has many more images and some history.
