Artist's Description

The Church and Convent of Santo Domingo of located in the Historic Center of Lima, Peru dates back to the 16th century. The formal name of the complex is Nuestra Señora del Santísimo Rosario (Our Lady of the Rosary) and is the oldest religious complex in Lima. Construction began when Lima was founded in 1535 and took 50 years to construct. Much of the structure was destroyed by earthquake in 1678 and the complex was rebuilt with the only real single bell tower steeple in Lima, which rises to 147 feet tall and is topped by the Angel of Fame. This complex contains much beauty in the way of gardens, tiles, paintings, wood balconies, arches, altars, and architectural styles, and is worth a stop just to view the beauty. September 2011.
