“Nicest church in Bolivia;-)”

Reviewed 4 February 2012

Don't get your hopes up too much, it's not the biggest, it's not the most spectacular.... but it certainly is very beautiful!
The roof painting is amazing (a kind of blue sky with stars), the paintings on the walls are very interesting: mixture of catholic and Andean elements. It's built a little bit above the city so you have a modest view of the altiplano and Oruro centre, although the recent craze in building high can still ruin your vista.
It's build upon an old mine tunnel and you can visit a nice small mine museum with the entrance inside the church.
