This is a monastery of Santo Augustin in Cuzco. Here we can see the walls build by Incas and a colonial Catholic temple in the top.In this place was located the main Inca temple that was covered with a monastery after spaniards arrived. A big earthquake put down some old colonials walls and this way the walls and little temples build by Incas were shown. The rounded wall near the church is fantastic. If you will visit Cuzco someday, don´t miss this place. It is like a explanation about how Peru we know today was build. That grey inca wall we can see was covered with a strip of gold when spaniards arrived.

Los colores estan un poco muertos , parece mas una escena del romanico por el centro norte de Espana . La composicion en si es buena pero noto a faltar algo de alegria en los colores y el cielo no me convence

A fine contrast from the green lawn to the old wall and dome.
Superb clearity, just the sky were grey that day.
Cusco is one dangerous city in SA, tourist attract many unwanted figures to this magnificent location, pitty about that.
