Thursday, January 29

Today I went to Qoricancha.  This is an Incan temple of the sun that was torn down and then rebuilt in the colonial style by the Dominican's.  The architecture of the site is beautiful, with the base being of Inca stonework and then you can see the European influence in the courtyard and the upper floors. Inside it is a museum housing many works from the Cusco school of art, dating from the 17th century.
