Church of the Week: San Juan Batista, Arequipa

One of the first churches we discovered on our recent (May 2009) trip to Peru was the Church of Saint John the Baptist (San Juan Batista) in Yanahuara, a very nice suburb of Arequipa.

This church, with its elaborate stone facade, was built in 1750, a period when a WHOLE BUNCH of churches were being built in the area. I took the pictures above during a stop on our four-hour tour of the city.
