Artist's Description

At the upper (northern) end of Avenida Mariscal Santa Cruz is Plaza San Francisco, with the church and monastery of San Francisco. Housed in the monastery is the Centro Cultural Museo San Francisco. Dating from 1549, this is one of the finest examples of colonial religious architecture in South America

The church is richly decorated using native religious themes; the mestizo baroque façade clearly displays how the traditional baroque vine motif is transformed into an array of animals, birds and plants. The interior contains huge, square columns and gilt altars.
