The structure was repaired and as much as possible of the paintings on the walls and lintels were restored. The bridge still reveals many of the charred places and some of the artwork is so black it is hard to determine what was being depicted.
Once across the bridge we found the Jesuit Church, a Romanesque designed facility which took only 10 years to erect in the 17 th Century. An unbelievably short span of time for such a large and ornate church. It was quite beautiful inside with much gold and elegantly carved wooden pews, pulpit, and choir area.
