Iglesia De Santo Domingo, Cusco

4.5
Once dazzling with gold-coated walls and solid gold statues, Iglesia De Santo Domingo now seems like a shell of its former self. Despite this, the temple--dedicated to the Inca sun god Inti--retains an air of mystique, as its blend of Inca and Spanish architecture symbolizes a clash of two empires. Legend has it the temple was stripped of most of its gold when the Spanish ransomed an Inca leader Atahualpa, forcing their enemies to surrender much of their wealth. You can admire the hardy architecture of the Inca temple, and imagine the ornate decorations that once graced it.

  • The entrance costs 15 soles, if you go in city tours at the door there are guides that can explain but I found it expensive compared if you took the city tours, since the prices range between 30 and 40 soles. This time I also visited the second floor which I didn't do the first time.
