The Museum of Religious Art has an interesting collection of religious paintings, memorable for their attention to historic detail – especially when it comes to the relationships between the conquistadors and the Incas. One of the most unique galleries is filled with life sized statues of the archbishops of Cusco.

The building itself qualifies as part of the collection. And not just because it has rather impressive ceilings – it's the palace of the Archbishop of Cusco, but before that it belonged to the Marquis of Buenavista, but long before that it belonged to the Incan king Inca Roca.
