Temples & Convents
The Catholic Church accompanied, from the beginning of the conquest, the Spanish forces. To kick off their evangelizing, priestly orders of the time built their churches over the most important and spectacular Inca palaces and temples to show off their power and impose its religion on the population of Cusco. On the other hand, they had to be built to house the clergy convents. These well maintained buildings (10 in special) have architectural and historical details which are worthy of appreciation.
