  • A very soothing place, this Convent is rather imposing from the outside and once inside, we forgotten be downtown.

  • Old church off the main Plaza of Cuzco. Set in an impressive building, characteristic architecture. While wandering, often going past her. If there is a desire, it is possible to take a peek.

  • Another beautiful place of worship. It felt truly peaceful
  • peaceful and nice.
  • The architecture and facade were elegant. Since Sunday worship was taking place, I could not go to the altar. However, I could feel big dignities even from the entrance of the church.
  • Beautiful church.
