Cathedral & Churches Tour in Cusco Cathedral & Churches Tour in Cusco
Visiting churches of Cusco begins in the main temple of the Incas since it is now the cloisters of the Dominican Order who occupied it with what is the Church of the Rosary and was the Inca construction of the Qorikancha, their temple of gold. Many visit the cloisters but few step into the church which holds the walls that were part of the temple of the Sun of the ancient Peruvians. Near to this church it is recommendable to visit Santa Catalina where the Dominican nuns have designed a reconstruction of the way of life of those religious women, who still live in the premises, and show how life was in the past since it also served for the selected women in the time of the Incas. This walk leads us to the Main Square where there are four churches in the Plaza. Three of them share the space of the cathedral. On the north lies the church of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, and the one dedicated to the Triumph (Triunfo) facing the south from the street dedicated to the commercialization of beef. On the southern flank stands the church of the Jesuit Order which contains the most elaborate baroque altars and hold a painting that shows the occasion of the marriage of an Inca princess to the grandson’s brother of San Ignacio de Loyola, founder of the Order. As we continue walking along the flank of the Jesuits in the Main Square, we reach the Plaza of Espinar which serves as the square of the church of the Mercedarian Order. This church holds the most exotic monstrance in its beautiful convent which is full of jewels in its golden body. Following the way, we shall reach the square of San Francisco which is interesting to visit since it holds a picture of the genealogy of the Franciscan Order. We can then follow the street toward the San Pedro church beside de Market Place and may be enter the Santa Clara Church and its nunnery if there is mass service (necessarily on Sunday) and admire the chapels ornamented by lots of mirrors. Another church that can be visited is Santa Teresa, also run by nuns who live there enclosed for life and their convent is surrounded by Inca walls.
