Fodor's Review

In the Chiquitania region of Santa Cruz, Jesuit priests in the 17th century built this church for local Christianized Indians. The 10 churches that remain are beautiful examples of a merging of Catholic and local religious influences of that period, as well as the venue of an international festival of Baroque and Renaissance music. It's also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ask about tours to the area in agencies in the city.
