Abstract

Built in 1751, the Discalced Carmelites Convent of Saint Teresa in the city of Cochabamba (Bolivia) is an architectural gem.

Two hundred sixty years after its construction, it has been restored with funding from the US embassy along with voluntary contributions by parishioners. The work was carried out under the architect Mario Moscoso, as project manager, Ximena Karla Santa Cruz, as resident architect, the architect Simone Rinaldi, as supervisor, and Reverend Father Linton Guzmán, whom we thank for his tireless work in raising the necessary resources. Some 60 people more were also involved in the works.
