Peru: Qorikancha Sun Temple

Located in Cusco, Qorikancha, or “Temple of the Sun,” was the most important temple of the Inca Empire. The walls of this impressive structure were covered in gold until the Spanish arrived and melted it down to use for themselves. But even without golden walls, the Incan’s impressive basalt stonework remains—and it’s a must-see when in Peru.
