Cusco´s cathedral was begun in 1560, and was not finished until 1669. The interior was created in a renaissance style with woodcarvings in cedar and alder. The most prominent carvings are the chorus, the pulpit, the altars, and the wooden pews.
According to inca cosmology, the qorikancha is located exactly at the center of the inca world. It is an impressive building, a product of artistic genius and the creative force of the tawantinsuyo, the inac empire. The qorikancha was the most important of all the temples, where the high priest lived and practised the religion of the sun god. According to the chronicles, the inside walls of the temple were completely covered in gold. The most interesting areas of the temple of the sun are the royal quarters, the rooms dedicated to the moon, stars and rainbow, and also the circular wall that characterizes the temple´s façade.
