Cathedral of Santo Domingo, Cusco
The Cathedral of Santo Domingo in Cusco, which is also known as 'Cusco Cathedral,is set on the main square of the Peruvian city, the Plaza de Armas. Building was completed in 1654, almost a hundred years after construction began. Adjacent, and joined, to the cathedral is the smaller 'Iglesia del Triunfo', which was the first christian church to be built in Cusco. The 'Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus,' that also dominates the Plaza de Armas, was built at a similar time to Santo Domingo. The Cathedral, as well as its official status as a place of worship, has become a major repository of Cusco's colonial art, and also many artifacts and relics. The cathedral has UNESCO World Heritage status under the City of Cuzco listing in 1983.
