Church of Saint Andrews, Santa Cruz

Church of Saint Andrews, Santa Cruz

The Church of Saint Andrews was built in 1849 with support from Archbishop José Andrés Salvatierra Chavez, who was an important figure during the struggle for emancipation. The original building was oriented east-west, unlike the current one that has a south-north orientation. Its original facade was similar to the temples of Jesuit Missions of Chiquitos that had survived until the late 40s. Today, it is an impressive place of worship on Calle Beni and should definitely be included in your list of must see sights in Santa Cruz.
