The Cathedral - (1566 – 1669) – Built on an important temple Inca, dedicated to the God Wiracocha. Its altars are splendid; its pulpit of carved wood is magnificent, as are the choir stalls. It also holds a good collection of paintings from the Cusco School. Its gold and silver work are some of the richest treasures known in Colonial art, including an immense monstrance of gold and precious stones and a solid silver shrine for the Corpus Christy procession.

Koricancha - It was one of the most worshiped and respected temples of the city. "The gold precinct", as it was known, was a sacred place where people venerated the maximum Incan god: the INTI. For that reason, people could only get there fasting, barefooted and with some load on their backs as a sign of humility, in compliance with the indications of the main priest "Wilaq Umuo". According to the history, when the Spaniards broke into the temple, they did not respect any of the aforementioned rules.
You can still appreciate the walls and rooms showing the high level of the Inca techniques. They said that it was a garden with gold sculptures of trees, animals and flowers and this explains its Quechua name. Thick gold plates covered the walls of the Sun Temple, which also sheltered an enormous massive gold shield. Nothing of these treasures has been recovered. They said that all these relics were sent to the king of Spain.
