After the Spanish conquest the evangelizing action was not only translated in a large part of the prehispanic establishments in the same practice of the religion, but also in the construction of remarkable constructions dedicated to the cult. It is so during the XVIII century it is built to 62 km to the south of Lima, in the town of Chilca, one of the most beautiful examples in Baroque architecture of our coast: Our Church Mrs. of Asunción of Chilca.
