Peru & Machu Picchu
For the last week of our trip we went down to the lowlands. This is Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel in the Lima Cathedral. Many of the churches in Peru date from the 1500s, however in Cusco no photography is allowed inside. This chapel was recently renovated because of an infestation of termites. It was then that the beautiful blue color was discovered. The original cedar carving was done by native artists - paid only with indulgences from the archbishop!
