We also visit its central plaza, beautifully laid-out with palm trees and gardens.

Part I – The Monastery of Santa Catalina.
First, we will visit the Santa Catalina Monastery.
Here we will walk through cobblestone streets, plazas, fountains, and chapels.
Among the highlights is the Orange Tree Cloister, with mural paintings.
Meanwhile, other murals depict scenes from the life of Jesus Christ.
Santa Catalina is considered more like a small town than a religious complex.
We will spend about two hours exploring this site.

This cathedral is considered the most important Catholic church in the city.
Unlike other religious buildings, the Cathedral owns a very interesting museum.
The museum displays a great collection of liturgical objects, as well as paintings.
Additionally, we can get on top of the cathedral and take a closer look at their bells.
Part III – The Museum of Juanita “The Ice Inca Girl”
Finally, we will visit Juanita; a young Inca girl sacrificed to the Inca gods.
She was discovered, almost perfectly preserved, beneath the glaciers of a mountain.
According to scholars, Juanita was about fifteen years old when she died.
Besides the remains of the young girl, the bundle also contained various relics.
Among the relics, archaeologists found small clay statues, shells, and gold objects.
Likewise, the Ice Girl also display offerings of coca leaves, corn, and fruits.
In addition, the museum also exhibits Inca pottery, jewelry as well as textiles.
