CUSCO | Iglesia De La Compañia De Jesús (The Church of the Society of Jesus) is a church built by the Jesuits in 1571 and reconstructed after an earthquake in 1650. It’s located in Cusco’s main square (Plaza de Armas de Cusco), on the site where Amarucancha, palace of the Inca Huayna Cápac, once stood.

It’s built in the Baroque style, and is one of the best example of this style of architecture in the region. Inside, it features paintings and sculptures by Diego de la Puente, Marcos Zapata, and Cristo de Burgos. Several of the paintings depict important local weddings, the most notable being that of Martín García Oñas de Loyola with Doña Ñusta Clara Beatriz Qoya – a Spanish captain and the great-niece of Túpac Amaru, the last Inca ruler.

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.
