The Religious Circuit Tour - Excursion to the Churches of Cusco is a half-day tour accompanied by a professional guide that will allow you to explore the Colonial Cusco. The city of Cusco is a place full of history and culture, where you can appreciate colonial buildings, historical monuments, and an architecture that reflects the cultural syncretism between Inca culture and Spanish colonial influence. Furthermore, you will learn more about Cusqueña traditions and customs that gave rise to this cultural fusion.
Since all the places of visit are located in the historic center of Cusco, the tour is usually conducted on foot, weather permitting.
To start this tour, we will pick you up early from your hotel. Our first destination will be the Church of the Company of Jesus. This church was built during the colonial period (17th century) and is famous for its elegant architectural details. One of its main features is its beautiful baroque facades with columns and decorative elements. Inside the church, we can climb the stairs that will lead us to one of the towers, from where we can appreciate a privileged view of the Plaza de Armas.
Our second visit is to The Cathedral Basilica of Cusco. This impressive church is one of the main examples of Spanish colonial architecture in the country. It was built in 1559 on the ruins of the ancient Inca Citadel and houses a variety of works of art and religious objects, such as the stunning baroque dome and the cathedral choir, which is entirely made of cedar wood.
Next, we will visit the Archbishop's Palace. This imposing 16th-century building was constructed by the Spanish and is located in the historic center of Cusco. It features beautiful paintings from the Cusco School, depicting the life and events of the Cusqueños and biblical stories. The palace also boasts lovely courtyards and gardens. The famous stone of the twelve angles is located in this place.
To conclude this religious circuit, we will visit The Church of San Blas, built in the 16th century (1562). It is located in the Plaza de San Blas, an ideal spot for tourists seeking to enjoy a panoramic view of the city. The Church of San Blas is one of the oldest temples in the city of Cusco and is famous for its pulpit carved by Juan Tomás Tuirutupa, a carver who, after being cured of leprosy, crafted the pulpit from a single log. The church is also known for its pre-Columbian paintings and engravings. Additionally, the church's ceiling is adorned with beautiful wood carvings.
And thus concludes our religious circuit tour, hoping that you have enjoyed these mysterious and impressive churches.
