Admire the Baroque artistry of Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus, a historic place of worship in Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Construction began in 1576, though the building was severely damaged during an earthquake in the mid-17th century. Rebuilt two decades later, the church displays an attractive architectural style, while the interior boasts an impressive main altar covered in gold leaf, an atmospheric underground chapel, and a collection of original artworks dating back to the colonial era.
