The altar is 21m tall and 12m wide. Carved wood covered with 22ct gold. The conquerors flattened the temples, built churches on them and melted the gold. This is where some of it went.

We are very grateful for your comments. Each of the paintings in the Barroco Andino does indeed preserve magnificent stories. We are glad to hear that you were able to share your experience of the Ruta del Barroco Andino (Andean Barroque Route).

For me this was a more beautiful and satisfying place to visit that the neighbouring Cathedral. You can also go up to a balcony for a very nice view of the Square.

The Jesuits have been working for social justice for 450 years. This church is ground zero and its gorgeous. Possibly the coolest Jesus I have seen.

Worth seeing. Looks to be in a bit of disrepair but of course with the earthquakes and age it is to be expected. We certainly enjoyed it and would recommend.

You could probably ask the concierge at the Hotel Monasterio Cusco. Plus this hotel was a former Monastery and is just beautiful, and it could also be a great choice for vows
