El Norte Grande Sights

Iglesia San Pedro

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

To the west of the square is one of the altiplano's largest churches. It was miraculously constructed in 1744 without the use of a single nail—the builders used cactus sinews to tie the roof beams and door hinges. The new refurbishment (to be completed early 2015) maintains the same original structure but should reinforce the church for centuries to come.
