Re. Impressive
I was as impressed as you were by the church you mentioned. Actually though, the La Merced was my favourite in Juliaca. Not that it matters, but I'm not sure which of the two is the largest or which one is the oldest. They are both definitely 'impressive' anyway!

Even for quite a small city, Juliaca has a few different churches and cathedrals that are great examples of architecture. My favourite of the lot was the stony Santa Catalina church but I'm not sure if I'm correct in saying it is the largest?

Re. The Carnival
Good advice Mr Flewitt, it is wonderful to be in Juliaca around carnival time. If it isn't possible to head to the area in February or March, late January is also good for enjoying Juliaca as the Saint Sebastian's festival is held on the 20th of that month.

The Carnival
If you're looking at going to Juliaca, I would like to recommend that you visit anytime between February and March as this is when the carnival takes over the city. In carnival season, you will see colourfully-dressed dancers gathering on the street and even the residents of the city wear bright clothes.

Juliaca's reply to Rio
Ok, so the White Christ statue in Juliaca is miniscule compared to Christ the Redeemer in Rio, but it is worth checking out. To be honest, I think that it is better that the one in the Rio in at least one way as its small size means you can fit both the statue and a few people in the same photo!
