Churches of Cusco

Walking the streets of Cuzco, Peru one is reminded of the dominance of the Spaniards over the Incas in the early 1500’s. Being the capital of the Inca Empire, conquest of Cusco was the triumph of the Spanish. In celebration of their success, and to convert Incas to Catholicism, a number of churches were built throughout Cusco.
