Baroque Temples of Collao

.

Baroque Temples of Collao is part of the Tentative list of Peru in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Baroque Temples of Collao is a group of eight churches built on the high plateaus of the Peruvian Andes to facilitate the evangelisation of the local population during the Spanish colonisation. A particular artistic and architectural style, mixing European knowledge and local traditions, influenced by the schools of architecture of Cusco and Arequipa, developed on these high plateaus: the Andean Baroque. These churches, built between the 16th and 18th centuries, are generally characterised by monumental stone constructions with a Latin cross plan, richly decorated altars and more sober interiors.
