Alvarez - the Jesuit City

Sign in to follow this  


Welcome again to San Pedro. This is kind of a short update in Alvarez. (Pronounced Alvareth by locals... as is similar in many regions of Spain, San Pedrians often pronounce "c" and "z" as "th") It is a small town located in the central valley of the island of San Pedro. (I've remade it, since the older one was less detailed and kinda boring imho. :P )



It is called "The Jesuit City" because of the Jesuit church in the center of the town. The church, St. Ignatius, was built in the 16th century as a center for the Jesuit order in San Pedro.


The Jesuits were prominent in San Pedro's trade and evangelization efforts in other nations. However, they were suppressed later on due to their accumulation of power and wealth, which rivaled the rule of the crown.


Aside from the Jesuit church, there are hidden streets that contain small shops and restaurants.



And finally, a view of the Alcázar de Calvario.


Thank you for reading!
