Compañía de Jesús

Highly recommended
Constructed by the Jesuits in the 18C, the grandeur and rich ornamentation of the Compañía de Jesús seems to defy the next-door cathedral. Behind the profusely carved Baroque façade are a host of elements such as the imposing main altar entirely covered in gilt, whose sculptures and superb paintings bear witness to the brotherly relations between the Jesuits and Indians.
