Iglesia de Parinacota

Reviewed By KatrienS955 - Ghent, Belgium

The church is nice from the outside, but is special compared to those in the nearby villages, that the interior is covered with frescoes. These are worth the wait and trouble of finding the person with the key to open the church. Our driver knew whom the person was, but we still needed to wait half an hour, as the whole village was having a discussion (they seem to be in a perpetual fight, as our driver who was from this village told us). Due to the fighting the church has not yet been renovated. The frescoes clearly blend European and local imagery, and interestingly the Roman soldiers are all presented as Spanish soldiers. Near the exit on your left site there is also a depiction of the mouth of hell. Some of the remaining silver artefacts are on display in a dark side room, near the altar is the "moving table", which is now on a chain, but supposedly at nght otherwise flies off, and stops at a house where someone will die.
