Cusco, Peru – Through My Lens

Hi All, it’s time for another photographic post, and today I’ve gone with some shots from Cusco, Peru. Not sure why I haven’t posted photos from this particularly photogenic city in the mountains, where the surrounding hills make for a magnificent backdrop. The ancient Incan ruins of Qorikancha are located in Cusco. The Santa Domingo Monastery/Chuch sits partially over them now, and either way it’s an important historic site. Despite being mainly known as the hop-off point for getting to Machu Picchu, Cusco has a lot to offer in its own right! Enjoy!
