The church is rather small and unassuming but what makes it special is the fact that it is almost 500 years old! Of great historic value.

Excellent ancient church just off the main square in Purmamarca. Very simple compared to others in the region but great example of spectacular Cactus wood interior.

Set off the tiny main square of Purmamarca and named for the local patron, it is not much of a visit.

The large wooden beams supply the entry structure and just inside you notice the beautiful patterns of the ceiling wood which I assume to be cactus. Woodwork predominates throughout. Located at one end of Square it can't be missed.

Not as beautifully decorated as, for instance the church at Uquia further up the Valley, this church nonetheless is a typical example of the colonial places of worship in the region.

People from the Puna are very religious and treat the church as a serious part of their daily culture and rituals. August is "pagan time", when they have nice indoors cerimonies for the "pacha mama".
