La Merced Chapel from Carl Hersh on Vimeo.

La Merced Chapel is a hidden artistic jewel in inauspicious surroundings in Miami’s Allapattah neighborhood. On the grounds of Corpus Christi Church, the building evokes a Peruvian baroque chapel of the colonial period in the 17th and 18th century. The building is a faithful construction and is filled with authentic religious paintings and furniture from Latin America’s under-appreciated Colonial period.
