The construction of the Cusco Cathedral, occurred in two phases: first the Chapel of Triumph was built on what had been the ancient temple of Suntur Wasi (House of God); afterwards, the cathedral was erected on the palace of the Inca Wiracocha.

The Renaissance style dominates the façade and the interior, which features particularly exquisite carvings in cedar and alder. The choir and the pulpit are both remarkable for their beauty. It houses an important collection of paintings from the Cusco School and silver-embossed objects.

The Cathedral is located next to the Plaza de Armas.

Visiting hours: Mon – Sun 10.00 am to 6.00 pm, including public holidays.
