Andean Baroque Route: Inca & Colonial Mixture
This religious circuit of the Andes in Peru considers one church in Cusco and three in the neighboring province of Quispikanchis some 42 kilometers south of Cusco. Its importance stands out due to their construction between the 16th and 19th century. The tour begins in the church of the Compañía de Jesús in Cusco which is located in the main square of the city of Cusco. Later, we proceed south to the area of Quispikanchis where we shall find the temple of San Juan Bautista de Huaro, which was built at the second half of the 16th. century showing work of the Cusco painter Tadeo Escalante showing images of more than a thousand meters where we can see the differences of the death of the rich and the poor, the tree of life, Purgatory, Glory and Death. Soon before we reach the end of the valley, we come across the church of San Pedro de Andahuaylillas which show how the Spaniards built large and elegant constructions in the areas that were important for the Incas. The ceiling stands out since it is covered with extraordinary paintings and several chapels inside the church contains paintings of catholic angels fo the iconography of that historical form or art. The baptistery is peculiar because it holds the writing of the invocations of baptism in five different languages: latin, Spanish, quechua, aymara and pukina. This shows the languages that were in use in Cusco of those days. This church was another that was under to control of the Jesuit order. It holds a procession of children every year on the date of Saint Peter and Saint Paul on the 29th. of June. Further south we come to the important church of the Purified Virgin of Caninkunka which stands over a Wari waka (inca temple) beside the town’s lake that was built in the 17th. Century and has its walls painted in gold and hold large murals. It holds its feast on February 2nd. Together with the Candelaria’s feast with an impressive mass attended by the Capác Colla brotherhood.
