Situated in the subtle but gorgeous street of Hatunrumliyoc in Cuzco, Peru, the Museo de Arte Religioso occupies the former palace of the Archbishop of Cuzco. However, the building was also home to other historically celebrated individuals, including a prominent Spanish nobleman, and Inca Roca, the sixth ruler of Cuzco in the 14th century.

The museum features several religious paintings that are famous for the rich history they communicate. It also exhibits a handful of collections from various artists, including nature painter Juan Zapata. Also on display are fantastic examples of Peruvian colonial furniture. However, the real attraction is the building itself, as its old Moorish-style features beautiful stained-glass windows and meticulously hand crafted cedar ceilings.

The artworks on display in the Museo de Arte Religioso are primarily the brainchildren of Andean painters, as several of the featured oil works depict native plants and animals of the Cuzco region. This is a great place for art lovers and historians alike! The museum is open Monday through Saturday 8 am to 11:30 am and 3 pm to 5:30 pm. Also take note of the stunning Incan stonework on the building's exterior!
