Here are some images from a very inspiring place. La Compañía de Quito.

Wikipedia describes it better:

“The Church of the Society of Jesus, known colloquially as La Compañía) is a Jesuit church in the historic center of QuitoEcuador. It is among the best-known churches in Quito because of its large central nave, which is profusely decorated with gold leafgilded plaster and wood carvings…. La Compañía is one of the most significant works of Spanish Baroque architecture in South America.”
