"Koricancha Site Museum" Qoriqancha - Santo Domingo Convent Tip by cruisingbug

  Gold Llamas, Koricancha Museum, Cusco, Peru
by cruisingbug
 
 

This little, underground museum just around the corner from Koricancha is worth a visit - and is included in the Boleto Turistico. There are some interesting exhibits about the artifacts uncovered at the site, including these gold Inca (maybe pre-Inca?) llamas. At the very least, they gave an idea for a souvenir, and now I have my own gold-colored llama here at home!
