In Andahuaylillas stand out its Catholic church from the colonial time with a beautiful mural decoration since XVII and XVIII century known as the Sistine Chapel of América, the quality of the artwork found inside. This church was built on Incas construction by the Jesuits in the XVI century, with walls of adobe and stone columns. Inside of the church left side is the inscription I baptize you in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit Amen, the most interesting is that the inscription is written in 5 languages like Latin, Quechua, Aimara, uro puquina and Castilian (uro puquina extinct).
