You have to see this if you go to Cusco. Nobody can explain how they did it. These wall have survived time and earthquakes. Look across the alley and compare it to Spanish stonework. You will be amazed.

Take the audio guide (we had to ask for it)! Great paintings and very nice wooden arts. It's worth to see in Cusco.
