Church of the Society of Jesus (s. XVII) and cloister of the adjacent school (1738), Arequipa, Peru.

Built entirely in sillar, a local variety of white volcanic stone, both church and cloister are outstanding examples of arequipeño baroque architecture.The arcades of the cloister are lavishly carved in stone, in what some scholars call mestizo or planiforme architecture.
