Santiago Apóstol de Nuestra Señora del Rosario

Santiago Apóstol de Nuestra Señora del Rosario Review

The main attraction in the small lakeside town of Pomata is the church of Santiago Apóstol de Nuestra Señora del Rosario. It was built of pink granite in the 18th century and has paintings from the Cusco School and the Flemish School. Its mestizo baroque carvings and translucent alabaster windows are spectacular. Its altars are covered in gold leaf. Pomata is also famous for its fine pottery, especially for its Toritos de Pucará (bull figures).
