Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus (Church of the Society of Jesus)

This is the rival church to the Cusco Cathedral.  Both of these churches sit near each other on the Plaza de Armas.   The Jesuits constructed it in 1576 on the foundations of a palace built for an Inca ruler named Wayna Qhapaq.  It’s considered one of the best examples of colonial baroque style in the Americas.

My dad, MJ and I toured the inside of this beautiful church before I took this photo.  Fun day.
