Church and convent of Santa Clara in Cusco

In the historic center of Cusco you can see colonial churches everywhere. One of the most famous temples is the church and convent of Santa Clara, which is located just 600 meters from the city’s Main Square. The enclosure housed the mestizo maidens descendants of the Incas. Today, in charge of the Poor Clare nuns, it continues to receive girls as well as visitors interested in learning about the relics they keep from the colony. It is one of the most famous religious tourist attractions in Cusco.
