  • Nice church and view
  • Nice
  • Pictures not allowed.
  • Another wonderful church
  • Although hispter environment appears to wrap it, the plaza surrounding the temple is a place of placid and beautiful meeting. Ideal for visiting during religious festivals. During the celebration of the Virgin of Carmen, for example, the square becomes scene of music and celebration among the cusquenian, always friendly and jovial.
