CUSCO | Catedral del Cusco also known as the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin is the main catholic religious monument found in the city of Cusco. Located on Plaza de Armas, this place of worship was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983. The cathedral was built intermittently between 1560 to 1664 with the base of the structure designed in the shape of a latin cross. It’s beautiful renaissance architecture and overall design was positioned that way to highlight the superiority of Catholicism that was bought to the area by the Spanish. The Spaniards even comprised part of the cathedral from the stones used at fortress Saqsaywaman.

Catedral del Cusco continues to be a place of worship however it now holds numerous pieces of colonial art and relics.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
