The Tourist Ticket
In the centre of the city is the Plaza de Armas, which was reputedly laid out by Inca Manco Capac and is also called Aucaypata (in quechua: warrior square). In the square, stands the splendid Cathedral, which took 94 years to be built. Next to this, stands the Capilla (chapel) de la Sagrada Familia, recently restored; and the Capilla del Triunfo, whose walls are adorned with masterpieces from the Cusco School, such as Diego Quispe Tito´s works.
The Compañía de Jesús, the pride of the Jesuit order, is also located in the Plaza de Armas; and a block away, in Calle Hatun Rumiyoq, there is the Museo del Arzobispado, which has some valuable works of art. On this same street, you can observe the famous rock with twelve angles which was a part of the Inca Roca´s palace.
