    ... of the plaza and is very reminiscent of Cathedrals in Europe with its Spanish influence. We arrived after the Feast of Corpus Christi which was on the 4th of June.

    ... by the Inka emperor Pachacuti but the reason why is not clear. Fortunately, it was not discovered by the Spanish and the damage they did to other sites was not repeated here.
