CHURCHES AND CONVENTS

Tipic of Lima

A dynamic baroque design, rising towers, spherical domes of Austrian baroque fashion constitute the more noticeable architectonic features of the church of Las Trinitarias which, standing in Jiron Ancash, together with the small square and the temple of La Buena Muerte forms one of Lima's more typical corners; its traditional charm and atmosphere still intact.

One example of the "limeņo" late Baroque is the front of the parish church of Cocharcas, at the end of Jiron Puno. The temple was built by native architect Sebastian Alonso. Its architectonic significance lies in its facade, built in the 18th Century, where its belfry, similar to those of the Iglesia de la Concepcion (Church of the Conception), outstand. Its "imafronte", of solid baroque suppleness, has an ascending bearing giving it harmony y elegance.

The "limeņo" architecture undergoes a change during the Illustration. Italian, French and Center-European contributions give greater distinctness to the structural and ornamental assortment, leading to a rational study which contrasts with the traditions of the Spanish baroque. This new tendency is evident in the temple of Las Nazarenas which is the finest and more harmonious example of 18th Century religious architecture. The facade has a delicate elliptic arch, elongated by its curves culminating in niches and small windows.

The building of Las Nazarenas marked the official consecration to the worship of the Seņor de los Milagros (Lord of the Miracles); an image painted in Mid 17th Century by a black slave and which on remaining intact after the devastating earthquakes of 1655, 1687 and 1746, became the object of great devotion maintained to these days.
