Immaculate Conception Mission Complex

The Conjunto Misional de la Inmaculada Concepción, erected between 1752 and 1756 by Father Martin Schmid, represents an architectural jewel of mestizo baroque style in Bolivia. Its structure, composed mainly of wood and adobe plastered with mud and lime, exhibits an exquisite decorative ornamentation on its walls and altars. Inside the church, the restored altars and the Way of the Cross carved in polychrome wood stand out, as well as a priceless collection of baroque music scores, including works by indigenous and Jesuit composers, which make this place a cultural epicenter in the region.

As the seat of the Apostolic Vicariate of Ñuflo de Chávez, the Cathedral of Concepción houses this rich collection of baroque music, which has given rise to the renowned International Festival of American Renaissance and Baroque Music “Misiones de Chiquitos”. In addition to its cultural importance, Concepción stands out for its biodiversity, being declared “Sanctuary of the Orchid” and home to the Birds of Prey Festival, thus becoming a destination that combines missionary history with the natural wealth of the region, offering visitors a unique experience on the Bolivian Music Route.
