“Great cultural immersion”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Especially on weekends the Iglesias and nearby squares are centers for cultural activity. As with any country, it is worth your time to watch for a bit and respect cultural mores. Enjoy!

“Very interesting experience”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We saw this on a rainy day but this fact did not alter our opinion of this fascinating temple. The rocks fit together with tongue and groove back in the 1400s. you could not put a piece of paper between the rocks...the windows line up exactly. Thanks to Ideal South America

“more than a church”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

this also gives you access to the museo arquelogico de qoricancha, there is a gallery room, nice gardens some inca stones so better than the cathedral but somehow felt like something was missing but along with the inca museum this is the best tourist attraction of this sort.

“Coricancha”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

A short walk from our hotel, and an interesting introduction to Inca and pre inca history. Good labelling so we did not need a guide.
