Fodor's Expert Review Santiago Apóstol de Nuestra Señora del Rosario

Pomata Religious Building/Site/Shrine

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