    Here is the church of San Pedro Apóstol de Andahuaylillas, built by the Jesuits in the 16th century. Like other Spanish religious constructions of the time, it was built on a 'huaca', or sacred place for the Incas. This temple is known for its architectural design, similar to others in the region. But what is most striking is the wall painting, which decorates the front and several areas of the place. It was painted in the seventeenth century, with the aim of educating the natives of that time about the Christian faith of the Spaniards, through illustrations, various murals were painted that now cover the entire surface of the roof of the church, which is manufactured with Gold leaf and polychrome wood.

The most important building within the complex is the "temple of Wiracocha" which according to ancient chroniclers was built by the Inca Wiracocha in honor of the invisible Superior God of the Andean people: "Apu Kon Titi Wiracocha."
