Cusco Cathedral, Cusco

4.5
Standing proudly over Cusco's main square since 1654, Cusco Cathedral remains one of the city's most prominent religious and historical landmarks. The site dates back to before the 17th century, as the cathedral stands above the ruins of an Inca temple, some of whose stones were used in the current building's construction. Nowadays the cathedral houses a large collection of colonial art and welcomes countless worshippers every day. Stop by to feel the history and admire the architecture, both inside and out.

  • Very interesting and ornate cathedral. I enjoyed the guinea pig last supper. A shame that you can’t take photos inside, even without flash.
  • A beautiful, huge and incredibly ornate cathedral. Entrance is steep at 25 S/, and you sadly can’t take photos inside, which seems like a curious decision. Worth a visit if you’re in the area and/or enjoy churches — as this is certainly one.
