  • Firstly, we were lucky. The young man is very mentally and captivating showed us all the nooks and crannies of the Cathedral and even held onto the roof and Bell Tower. We got there in the Catholic holiday and witnessed the traditions associated with the history of the city. Highly recommend to go there and, in particular, draw attention to the huge painting "the last supper"

  • 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.
