We had a guide who took our small group through the chapel and cathedral. You will see the famous Last Supper with the guinea pig (cuy) in the center of the table. Also, the black Jesus. It is memorable and we were glad we visited....More

Our Gate 1 guide helped us to see the fusion of the old Incan religion and Catholicism. One of the most notable paintings is the Last Supper where Passover is celebrated by eating cuy (guinea pig )

We did not have time to go inside the Cuzco Cathedral but the building looks impressive outside, a lot of entertainment and shows of natives are happening in front of the cathedral.
