The churches and most of the buildings aremade of stone, that surprises us because the Inkas didn't have iron or any other metal.

If you are into ancient architecture, this has a different perspective. A nice plaza in front gives it a lot of history.

This is one of the most beautiful squares I have seen throughout the world. The churches flanking it are interesting and certainly worth a visit. I especially loved the second story cafes looking out on the plaza.

It is a lovely place, and Cuzco is lovely itself. October is just great to visit Cuzco, with sunshine, blue blue sky and a few clouds. There are many restaurants and cafe around the square which is much enjoyable to sit down and just relax.
