Look at the only sign of the incas's presence: the floor of the square. The façade is beautiful. There is a cafeteria below the church, with a honest toilet.

We enjoyed the cafe bar in the square and the ambience. There is a fair trade shop, which has a maze of little corridors full of lovely ethnic goods.
