ABOUT THE MUSEUM

The Qorikancha Temple (gold enclosure) was built by the Inca Pachacuteq after his victory over the chancas in the year 1438. This was a sacred place where the maximum Inca god, the Inti (the Sun) was worship.

Currently, this site is managed by the Dominican Order of Cusco, who, in addition to its preaching function, and through the Museum spaces that currently operate in this site, promote cultural exchange and the dissemination of contemporary art, from local, national, and international artists.

The Museum contemplates all the temples of the Inca period, the Dominicans Congregation spaces and the three exhibition halls of contemporary art.

The Convent of Santo Domingo - Qorikancha Museum is a space for the exhibition and promotion of local, national and international art and culture, and invites tourists and the general public to visit the different Inca sites and exhibition halls of this important archaeological and cultural complex of Cusco.
