"OTHER CHURCHES" Cusco Things to Do Tip by swesn

Cusco Things to Do: 448 reviews and 804 photos

There are other impressive churches nearby:

- The gorgeous and graceful twin-towered La Compania de Jesus, built on the site of the Palace of the Serpents. It was known as Amarucancha, and used to be the residence of Inca Huayna Capac. Fine murals and paintings and the usual carved altars to admire.

- La Merced, an impressive monastery with a stunning cloister. The key item to gawk at here is the bejewelled monstrance which is a holy vessel.

- San Blas has a beautiful carved mestizo pulpit made of cedar.

- El Truinfo, etc...
