Owner description: This ruin was once the most important temple of the Incas, which was later used as a base for the Church of Santo Domingo when the Spanish conquered the city.

Beautiful, what's left of it! Can only imagine what it was like in the time of the Inca when the interior was sheathed in gold.

It is truly amazing to visit this site and witness how far superior the Inca era stonework was to that of the subsequent Spanish work. The colonial works surrounding the Inca temple have repeatedly succumbed to earth quakes over the centuries while the Inca work endures largely intact.

Saw as part of the Cusco city tour - really unique piece of architecture and guides are knowledgeable. Nice way to start the trip.

This is a remarkable sight to see. But, a guide is a "MUST" It's so difficult to know what to look at first. A guide can sort that out. No matter how many books you read before you get here, a guide has the 'reasl' experience to point out 'what's-what'.!
