This route, in addition to being full of history and religiosity, raises funds for the implementation of social programs in nearby communities, with the sale of handicrafts.

Santo Domingo Church and Convent

The Santo Domingo Church was built on the foundations of what is the Temple of Qoricancha. With the Spanish conquest, the culture, tradition, and religion were imposed on the Inca people, building this church as an important shrine for the worship of the Sun God.

This temple is considered the start of Andean architectural mestizaje, as it is one of the first religious complexes built after the Spanish conquest.
