The Qoricancha in Cuzco is the major historical place in the town. Here is the Inca's main temple, which was robbed, destroyed, and then use as the foundation for the Catholic cathedral. Beautiful garden, and the Inca's stones

Loved this place - so much history!! It was worth it to pay for a guide, if not you missed so many of the details.

We did not know what the museum was about. We thought there is something outside, bu then they said that is just outside. There is nothing to see here. Save your time. It is included in the Boleto Touristico, but waste of your time.

Probably the most interesting about it is that it is a church built on the base of an Inca's temple. Above that not specifically impressive.

The museum consists, in fact, of two separate parts, with two separate entrances. One part is ruins of Inca Temple and a church built on top of it. Many photos of this part are on TA site. A great place to visit with or without...More

Structure is imposing but its history is the most significant. Little bit of a stroll from the center unless you take the pedestrian passage which we discovered later. Lots of tour groups to follow around. Tip: Use your student ID and don't confuse the catacomb...More

Located centrally in Cusco and well worth a visit. Glad we made the effort. The Inca foundations/remains are substantial and were incorporated into the Spanish Cathedral. As with other structures, those built by the Incas survive the earthquakes whereas the Spanish efforts are not resilient.

We were with a group and did have a guide, and he was great. He gave us a lot of information that we might not have gotten otherwise.
