CHURCHES IN LIMA

The Barefoot Friars Church El Patrocinio Church

THE BAREFOOT FRIARS
CHURCH AND CONVENT

When the visitor gazes at its humble façade, it will seem as if he is facing a village church located in the prominent side of the notable Alameda de los Descalzos - Barefoot Friars' Esplanade. Nevertheless, its true artistic value is precisely within that soberness, in the neat and simplistic conventual's patios and above all, in the artistic works it treasures.

Both the Church and the Convent were built in the 17th Century. It is a typical convent of recollection. Seemingly, its construction had the aim of using it as a house of meditation and penitence.

Location: Alameda de los Descalzos (no number)
Telephone: (511) 481-0441.
Visits: Wednesday - Monday from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm and from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.

Museo del Convento de los Descalzos - Museum

There are exhibitions of Colonial paintings, choral books as well as the rooms of the convent themselves. The valuable collection of paintings includes works of the Schools of Lima, Quito and Cusco. To mention a few, there are canvasses by the Seville Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617 - 1682), Diego Quispe Tito from Cusco (1611 - 1681), the Criollo Leonardo Jaramillo (17th Century) and the Italian Angelino Medoro (1547 - 1629).



IGLESIA DE EL PATROCINIO - CHURCH

This small temple was inaugurated in 1688. It shows a very harmonious design and is regarded as an example of the Baroque style from the 17th Century. The story goes that in this place the Beato Fray Masías was dutifully breeding pigs when he experienced some sudden revelations.

It is located sideways to the Alameda de los Descalzos.
