Cathedral Of Santo Domingo - Review
Church of Santo Domingo is a popular destination for all the tourists visiting the city. The church of Santo Domingo is a beautiful structure characterized by gold interiors. The golden architectural ceiling of the church of Santo Domingo is very impressive. The work is simply mesmerizing.
Another magnificent feat of architecture which will appeal to your eyes is the enormous altar covered with gold. The church surprises its visitors. Even the atheists will be able to admire the ethereal beauty of this place. Several traditional weddings are held in this beautiful church of Santo Domingo. Although you won’t be able to see these unless you are going to Cuzco for one, they are nothing short of spectacular.
The items exhibited in the church are very rare as well as precious.It is indeed one of the richest cathedrals.
Do take time to admire the beautiful artwork done on the walls of the church of Santo Domingo.

Cathedral Of Santo Domingo, Cusco Reviews
A massive cathedral built on the ruins of an Aztec Empire. How can I not give it five stars? The guinea pig last summer meal is just one of many highlights to this incredible structure. The cathedral next door is a little more bang for your buck, but this is an experience I was glad I did not miss.
Underwhelming, pricey, and full of tourist groups. The Last Supper image is NOT cuy, it's an Andean chinchilla - amongst other willful misconceptions about this place. No photos allowed either. But at least we saw the resting place of Inca Garcilaso De la Vega - what an incredible history.
Big cathedral. Lots of gold everywhere. A bit pricey for admission tho at $25 sol. The other, smaller cathedral down the street is only $10 sol and has amazing views as well
The Cathedral at first glance wouldn't seem that big, but upon entering the area, you'd find plenty of nooks and corners to go through. A Roman Catholic church completed in 1654 in Gothic-Renaissance style of architecture. The interior is filled with all kinds of precious metals-gold and silver-and gems. Of interest would be the Black Christ, which has a story of its divinity that when an earthquake happened and the Black Christ was taken out to the center of the city, the earthquake and fires stopped. If you can get an informative guide, you'd return with a wealth of information.
It was great, dont listen to dominic below. Hes a moron
