OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY OF TILCARA

It was built in 1797 and completed in 1865.
The building has the typical sober exterior facade of the churches of the valley with two bell towers, besides the typical porch overlooking a courtyard outside the church and a brick frame around it


Its design features respond to local tradition, with whitewashed adobe walls , stone floors and roof of wood cactus, covered with ceramic tiles.

Six paintings from the Cuzco school, with scenes from the Life of the Virgin, are the most valuable artistic heritage of this church.
