Standing proudly over Cusco's main square since 1654, Cusco Cathedral remains one of the city's most prominent religious and historical landmarks. The site dates back to before the 17th century, as the cathedral stands above the ruins of an Inca temple, some of whose stones were used in the current building's construction. Nowadays the cathedral houses a large collection of colonial art and welcomes countless worshippers every day. Stop by to feel the history and admire the architecture, both inside and out. Before you head to Cusco, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Cusco tour builder site, to make sure you see all that Cusco has to offer, including Cusco Cathedral.

  • You must visit this amazing cathedral if only to see the main course at the last supper. Spoiler alert: it is cuy!!!! (Guinea pig)
