With the old Inca temples and the cathedral literally on top, this is quite an interesting place to visit for an hour. The re-use of the temple walls is unusual.

The Inca ruins are magnificent - they wer destroyed by the Spanish and this Church was built over it. Look for the Sun temple - you will see lots of Spanish Churchs here in Cuzco but the real beauty is the workmanship of the Inca.

The church of Santo Domingo was built of the ruins of an ancient Incan temple and still stands next to Coricancha. Brings to life the impact o the Spanish invasion.

Without a doubt, we also managed to visit this ceremonial center as our Sandro guide told us, very well carved and above all very fine stones.

Worth seeing another example of how European colonialism and religious expansion attempted to quell a vibrant society.

A great combination of Inca, Spanish and modern architecture. You learn about the religion before the Spanish invasion, but also how the christianity changed the life in Cusco.

It's nice to walk around this place but if you have limited time, then this site could be skipped easily...

This is part of walking part of half-day tour of Cusco. Less impressive than cathedral, but worth a visit for interesting murals and ceramic tiles with guide.

As you are not allowed to wander around the Convent on your own, you are taken around the building by an 'in-house' guide anyway. Our was fine and did a good job of highlighting all the points of interest.
