Lonely Planet review for Iglesia y Convento San Francisco
While the Franciscan order has been in Jujuy since 1599, Iglesia y Convento San Francisco dates only from 1912. Nevertheless, its Museo Histórico Franciscano, alongside on Belgrano, retains a strong selection of colonial art from the Cuzco school, which came about when monks taught indigenous Peruvians the style of the great Spanish and Flemish masters; this school gradually developed a high-quality style of its own that still exists today.
