Fascinating history, architecture and art inside. We especially enjoyed the painting of the last supper with chinchilla and Peruvian fruits. The statues that are used in the Corpus Christi festival are also very interesting, as was the black Christ who protects the town from earthquakes. Essential visit for anyone interested in the history if Cusco and Peru. Leila and I came here after lunch at Greens and enjoyed the shelter from the intense sun.
Espléndido. Mucho arte donde se combina lo nativo y autóctono con el barroco español. Me sorprendió la cantidad de vírgenes que se adoran en este país. Llama la atención el Cristo Negro o Señor de los temblores.
Beautiful spot to join a guided tour with low cost entrance fees. The inside doesn't allow pictures but this centrally located building next to the main plaza offers up a beautiful interior full of gold sculptures and decorations. It's a beautiful sight to behold.
Beautiful colonial building. You can see the old Incan walls making up the substructure in the alleyways surrounding it
We had a short guided tour of the cathedral and were able to get acquainted with many stories and facts concerning this monumental building that were not included in a guidebook. It was a really enjoyable expierence.
