When crossing the streets of the city of Cusco, its enormous walls and palaces built by the Incas exhibit the colossal architecture of the capital of Tahuantinsuyo. When the Spanish conquerors arrived in this territory, they used as a base the Inca constructions of stone on stone and built on them churches, convents, mansions, which formed a peculiar symbiosis that contributed a unique character to this imperial city that was declared in 1983 as Cultural heritage of Humanity.
The large amount of Viceregal Art that is observed throughout the city, mainly formed by religious paintings with frames in gold leaf, transports us to a time in which the meeting of the Andean and Spanish culture resulted in the famed Cusqueña School.
