“Beautiful Cathedral”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

I always go for a visit to the Cusco Cathedral, it is very special for me

I like to walk around in peace and look into the beautiful artwork

Now that the renovations are almost finished you can see it in all her splendor

“Pretty amazing place”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

This place is big and flashy and typical of a Catholic Church.
It is lovely to see! But if you are not a fan of religion or of how the Catholic Church took over the Incas and ruined their families, farms, and lives than you might not want to step into this building.
It is overflowing with gold and silver and pomp and circumstance.
It has a lot of history but most of it at the expense of the Inca people...
Def. worth seeing.

“A dominant sight at the main square”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Cathedral of Santo Domingo (Cuzco Cathedral) was a large religious complex at the center of Cuzco. However, it is better known for its collection of Colonial arts, and for its stores of Peruvian archeological artifacts and relics. It is now a World heritage site in Cuzco. Interesting to note that most of the tourists came to see the painting of the Last Supper where Jesus was to share a Guinea pig and a glass of Chicha with the Apostles. The Guinea pig was a delicacy in Peru. Don't miss the painting; very interesting.

“Beautiful old building”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

A very beautiful old building located right in the historical center of Cusco. One of the biggest cathedrals in Peru and one of the oldest. Totally worth a visit.

“Great cathedral”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

This is a beautiful, interesting site. Takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Helpful to have a guide. Ornate. Interesting to see the way in which the church adapted to native tradition and culture.
