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.

  • A true testament to the mix of Inca tradition and Christianity. Keep an eye open for all the details.

  • Wonderful histories! Don't miss the Last Supper with guinea pig on the table and countless examples of syncretistic art... Especially in the original side chapel Madonnas and the "black" Jesus chapel and story of it's annual use and relation to the earthquakes in 1650 & 1950. I LOVED the actual car covered completely in silver still used in Corpus Christi parades.
  • It was a good experience to see what the Spanish colonization did to the aboriginal people's places. The architecture is nice from the outside and inside as well. The highlight of the whole cathedral is the picture inside where Pizzaro is represented as the person who ruined the Inca culture. Thank you 🇵🇪
