- This is one of the most beautiful architectonic structures dating back from the nineteenth century. The images inside date back from times of the Franciscanos. The church is located in the center of a square or plaza. It is home to the Virgin of the Inmaculate Conception. The legend has it that the image was carved by an Indian named Jose who was escaping from enemies. He had prayed to the Virgin to help him go unnoticed by enemies who were chasing him in order to kill him. Miraculously he did go unnoticed, so he decided to carve two images in honor of the Virgin: one was sent to Caacupe and the bigger one is the one that is at the Iglesia de Tobati.
