This museum is located in the center of the Santa Catalina monastery and houses a grand collection of paintings from the prestigious Cusquenan Art School. It includes some of the most outstanding impressions of Native American art, done in an indigenous style with a Spanish influence. You will also encounter many religious images. Among some of the most important saints and virgins in the museum are "Senor de los Temblores" and "Santa Catalina." Another impressive image is the "Patron Saint of Santiago," a warrior on horseback who is considered to be as powerful as "Llapa" Lord of Thunder. There is a pleasant cafeteria were you can sample a variety of desserts made by the Dominican cloistered nuns. Ceremonial wine and rosaries are also for sale.
