Set off the tiny main square of Purmamarca and named for the local patron, it is not much of a visit.

The large wooden beams supply the entry structure and just inside you notice the beautiful patterns of the ceiling wood which I assume to be cactus. Woodwork predominates throughout. Located at one end of Square it can't be missed.

VEry nice church, simple but very well done. It is surrounded by many algarrobo trees, one of which is 700 years old. Very beautiful....

Not as beautifully decorated as, for instance the church at Uquia further up the Valley, this church nonetheless is a typical example of the colonial places of worship in the region.

People from the Puna are very religious and treat the church as a serious part of their daily culture and rituals. August is "pagan time", when they have nice indoors cerimonies for the "pacha mama".

Take the time to visit this little church. Even if is not open the first time, go back another day. The paintings (XVII Century) are incredibly wonderful. All of them, but the ones at the altar, narrate episodes in the life of Santa Rosa de...More
