Franciscan baroque churches and chapels. Pure syncretism.

Franciscan territory where the evangelizing mission, although late, left beautiful examples of religious art, including small churches with sober facades and baroque altarpieces displaying indigenous craftsmanship. There is also a beautiful cathedral in the capital in honor of the Virgin of the Immaculate Conception.
