The Church of the Jesuits is famous for its intricately carved façade.
Its a prime example of Perus mestizo art style, which is matched by the opulence of the altar and sacristy.
In its entirety, the church and its cloister, form a monument representing Peru's religious architecture of the 17th century.
Another example of Hispanic-mestizo artwork are the architectural columns in the church's patios, each fashioned from carved stone.
