Inca Q’osco

November 2nd, 2006

The Inca city of Q’osco was large even by our standards, with numerous grand palaces, public buildings and temples. Despite their hate for the un-Godly yet vastly superior architecture, the Spanish couldn’t destroy all of it and much is still highly visible as the bottom half of almost all colonial buildings. Inca temples now prop up grand baroque churches and Inca palaces were turned into the foundations of colonial mansions.

These photos attempt to give a quick tour.
