The Cathedral, Cusco: 26 reviews and 44 photos

by vanessadb

The Cathedral was built over one of the most important Inca temples built in honor of the God Wiracocha; unlike Qoricancha, here the conquistadores did not keep the Inca foundations. This construction lasted more than a century.

Here you find a great artistic treasure, with paintings of great painters such as Marcos Zapata, Rafael de Urbina and Melchor Huamán,as well as a great variety of styles:Baroque, Rococo, Churrigeresco, etc.
