  Magnificent ceiling
by filipdebont

Once you have entered the Compania de Jesus church, you are overwhelmed by its beauty.

Wow, all those decorations, the guide told us that for the decoration of the ceiling alone, they used more then 700 kg of gold.
And believe me, it is only half as beautiful on a picture, you really should see this with your own eyes.
