Overview

Rodrigo de Liendo began construction of the Church of Las Mercedes in 1528. The building consists of a wide, domed nave with side chapels between buttresses, a high choir space, octagonal apse, and baroque main altar. In 1635 a bell tower was added. Originally the church belonged to the order of La Merced, but since 1910 it's been run by the Capuchin Fathers.
