La Compañía Church - Arequipa

 

(Jesuit Church of the Company of Jesus) This complex made up of buildings constructed by the Jesuits for religious and living purposes, is a representative monument of the seventeenth century religious architecture (1660). The church itself rises from the center of the buildings. It was designed in 1573 by Gaspar Baez and destroyed by an earthquake in 1584. The current structure dates from 1650. Inside you find sixty-six canvases from the Cuzco School from such artists as Bernardo Bitti and Diego de la Puente. (PromPeru).
