Church and convent of Santo Domingo in Cusco

During Inca times, the Coricancha temple was the most important religious site in Tahuantinsuyo. Later, during the colony, its foundations were used to build the church and convent of Santo Domingo, one of the most important Christian temples in Cusco. Currently, both structures (the Inca and the Baroque structure) survive time with their impressive towers, bell towers, paintings and other treasures.
