CHURCHES AND CONVENTS

Little Churches

The traveler must visit not only the great temples and monasteries but also the smaller churches "which have their charm, a graceful and delicate and, at the same, solid and mellow silhouette, giving them an unmistakable characteristic," as Hector Velarde points out in his book "Itinerarios de Lima" (Itineraries of Lima).

Temples and convents such as San Agustin To Related image to the Multimedia Gallerywhich lateral front with frontispiece and Ionic columns is an example of the first period of viceroyalty architecture; La Merced, on Jiron de la Union, outstanding for its sober and contoured polygonal belfry; or San Pedro, on Jiron Azangaro, which doesn't fail to attract the attention of tourists by its austerity and double arches; are but a few which should be visited.

Also worthy of attention, for the suppleness and lightness of their fronts, typical of Baroque Lima, are the churches of Jesus Maria (1721) and Las Trinitarias (1722). At the intersection of Moquegua and Camaná, the church of Jesus Maria is the purest and most simple model of the Lima monastic chapel in Colonial days. A small temple; although slightly small-townish, of perfect structural harmony and abundant in delicate grace. The facade admiringly reveals its interior and its front and turrets are like the luminous vertex of an invariable equilateral triangle. The pulpit and altar are opulent and resplendent. The gold plate suggests shapes and luxuries of Oriental origin.
