Another wonder to see

The convent is another amazing feet of the Incas. The stone work is incredible. There is a wonderful view of the city from the convent.

A very interesting place that will show how the Catholic convent incorporated part of the earlier Incan temple.

We came here as part of our group tour with Gate 1 Travel. What an incredible place with stories of being covered in gold! It kind of makes you mad at those conquistadors and their plundering ways. The Inka really had some great treasure stolen from them. One of the most interesting parts of the tour was seeing how the... More

This was a fascinating place to visit and learn about the history of Cusco. We had a guide to explain everything to us which probably added to the experience.

Located on the site of the most important temple in the Inca empire, it provides a excellent overview of the former Inca site. Provides some great views over the city.

The highlight of this visit is undoubtedly the cloister, and to get the best of the time you should get a guide to talk you through the history and the fusion of the Inca and Spanish cultures.

잉카문명에 관련된 돌이나 조각들, 그리고 건축양식이 남아있습니다. 또한 그위에 지어진 스페인 특유의 양식도 알 수 있습니다. 그냥 가서 보는 것보다 어느정도 배경지식을 알고있다면 더 뜻 깊을 것 같습니다. 가이드가 있다면 따라다니면서 설명을 들어도 좋을 것 같습니다. 아르마스 광장에서 멀지도 않습니다. 투어팀이 많아서 조용한 관람을 원하시면 일찍 가셔서 미리 보셔야 할 것 같습니다. If you want to know about Inca style... More

The 16th century cloister is a treat for itself, but combined with the Incan ruins is incomparable. Get a tour guide for the best experience, but the signage is quite clear on the history of what you're seeing. One of the highlights of my Peru trip!
