El Carmen Church Tours

El Carmen Church
Sure, the Trujillo Cathedral is the most well-known building in town, but the city has more than a dozen Colonial churches that visitors can photograph and enjoy. One of these churches, El Carmen Church, is only four blocks from the Plaza de Armas and the famous Trujillo Cathedral, but is far enough away from the heart of the action that you can still find moments of reflection.

Stretched out over an entire block, this massive white church with its bright red trim defines Colonial architecture. Constructed in 1724, the main draw of this Colonial masterpiece isn’t the building itself, however, but rather the large collection of art that is on display within the church. 

With over 150 original paintings, El Carmen Church has the largest collection of Colonial art in Trujillo. Both Baroque and Rococo styles are on marvelous display in the Cathedral, many of which are from the Quito School of the 17th and 18th centuries. In addition to the paintings, the hand carved altar and numerous murals round out the visual feast.

Practical Info

El Carmen Church is open for visitors from 9am-1pm, Monday-Saturday. Adult admission is $1, and the church can be reached either on foot from the Plaza de Armas, by private taxi, or as part of a guided tour.
