  • The convent and Church are quite large, he has large format canvases well preserved of the colony, as well as a choir or place of authorities carved in wood with fine finishes. Climb the Bell Tower offers a breathtaking view and you can breathe an air of calm in the middle of the city. Very close to the plaza de armas and the market. Students pay half.

  • The convent of St. Francis of Assisi had its first construction in the year 1548. Before the earthquake of 1650, exactly 1648, the Franciscans had already finished building the convent and the main church, shame that with the earthquake deteriorated the main cloister and collapsed the Tower of the Gospel (right Tower). In 1665 it adorns the main cloister of s. XVI with oil paintings depicting the life and work of the seraphic San Francisco. On December 5, 1668, Viceroy Pedro Fernández de Castro, Conde de Lemos, visit the city of Cusco and is invited by top Franciscan to tour, with his Viceregal Entourage, all the convent of san francisco of Cusco, on that occasion because it was the convent restored and the pinacoteca of the main cloister has been completed, then the viceroy exclaimed: "this convent has nothing to envy to those of Europe, since it exposes the conventual structure of s. XVI". Any corner of the convent says art and spirituality, this is case of the Chapterhouse of the High Choir of the temple, the altarpiece of Virgin of "Or", as well as large oil painting dedicated to the Franciscan family, known as the genealogical tree of the seraphic order , by whose dimensions, 12 tall by 9 width (108 m2), is the picture more great America and the third world.
