In the scenic village of Curahuara de Carangas , the lovely adobe-and-thatch church has been dubbed ‘the Sistine Chapel of the Altiplano.’ While that’s rather overblown, the charming little structure does contain a wealth of lovely naive 17th-century frescoes depicting typical mestizo-style themes and Biblical scenes as well as some interesting artifacts in a small room behind the altar. If there’s nobody at the church, look for the key in the Entel shop. A direct bus from Patacamaya runs regularly (B$10, 2½ hours).
