This place was supposed to be the most important landscape be of the incans. Now it just has some remains and a beautiful courtyard with flowers. Definitely worth seeing though, especially since it's walking distance from the centre!

Qurikancha is a lovely temple with exquisite grounds. Our tour guide brought us here and really helped me to understand the history behind this beautiful temple so I would recommend you go on a guided tour. You are only allowed to take photos in specific areas.

Usually this is part of the city tour, but I visited it on my own which allowed me to walk around and take pictures at my own pace. Got lost a couple of times, but in a place like that, getting lost is kind of great. There are so many groups visiting at the same time that I could also... More

Great place to visit. Beautiful inside and out. Easily accessible as it is a short walk from the historical centre of town.

This was apparently once the most important Inka-Palace in Cuzco. Now it's rather a church/colonial house with some remains of it. Walking through is nevertheless fun and some little explanation is provided (Spanish and English). If you have some spare-time in Cuzco a visit to this place isn't wrong.

Added to our macchu picchu experience without doubling up on info. Nice to learn a bit about the engineering and beliefs.

We spent a few hours checking out Qurikancha and we thoroughly enjoyed learning about the Inkas, the history of the area surrounding Cusco, and the arrival of the Spanish. The grounds are beautifully maintained and are centrally located in Cusco. Visiting Qurikancha helped us to have a good understanding of the Inkas and their culture before we headed out to... More

Make sure you get a guided tour or you will miss out on so much history. Another unbelievable piece of history in Peru and one you really should see.
