The church of Santo Domingo was built of the ruins of an ancient Incan temple and still stands next to Coricancha. Brings to life the impact o the Spanish invasion.

Without a doubt, we also managed to visit this ceremonial center as our Sandro guide told us, very well carved and above all very fine stones.

Worth seeing another example of how European colonialism and religious expansion attempted to quell a vibrant society.

A great combination of Inca, Spanish and modern architecture. You learn about the religion before the Spanish invasion, but also how the christianity changed the life in Cusco.

It's nice to walk around this place but if you have limited time, then this site could be skipped easily...

This is part of walking part of half-day tour of Cusco. Less impressive than cathedral, but worth a visit for interesting murals and ceramic tiles with guide.

Interesting colonial building on remains of the Inca temple. Has many fine paintings, and some interesting Inca information, e.g. the Inca callender. Small Inca museum in grounds dissapointing.

Great museum to learn about the Inca architectural history. I strongly recommend to get a private guide by the entrance. You will learn a lot of history.

As you are not allowed to wander around the Convent on your own, you are taken around the building by an 'in-house' guide anyway. Our was fine and did a good job of highlighting all the points of interest.
