    ... old corpse of 'Juanita', a human sacrifice at the summit of Mt Ampato, and all the stuff that was found with her and other oh-so-lucky 'chosen ones'. We haven't really got stuck into much cultural stuff since Cuba so it was really good to stumble across this really interesting and professional museum.

    ... a kitchen, garden yard which led to a terrace and a room for the servants. The lavishness of the "cell" was dependent on the wealth of the family.

    Finally, there is the Great Cloister, which at a later date became a communal dormitory. As you walk the streets of the convent, you see an outdoor laundry area, where the servants would also bath; a communal kitchen for special occasions; an orchard and of course a chapel. ...
