Santo Domingo was built on the walls of Qoricancha, Temple of the Sun. Excavation has unearthed more of the 5 chambers of the Temple of the Sun which revealed the exquisite and extremely impressive Inca stonework.
The cloister had also revealed some original chambers of the temple and other fine stonework is found in the famous curved wall beneath the west end of Santo Domingo. Below this wall was a garden of gold and silver replicas of animals and plants such as maize. Inca baths are also found behind.
Very interesting place to wander about.
