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.

This time I also visited the second floor which I didn't do the first time.
Les extérieurs sont très jolis mais l’interieur à peu d’interêt heureusement ce n’est pas très cher (10soles) on en a vite fait le tour . more »The exteriors are very pretty but the inside with little interest fortunately it is not very expensive (10soles) we quickly went around.
