The construction of the Cathedral began in the 16th century and was completed in the 18th century. The Cathedral is a mixture of Inca and Spanish architectural styles, with the use of Inca stone in its construction, and its facade is adorned in Baroque style. Inside the Cathedral, you can find many paintings, sculptures, and altarpieces from the colonial era, including the famous “Last Supper” painted by Diego Quispe Tito, an indigenous artist from Cusco.
