The Catacombs

Guillermo also took us to visit the New and Old Cathedrals in Cuenca. The New one was only 200 years old. The old one was built in the 1500s, after Pizarro whomped the Incan Empire and the Spaniards began colonizing Ecuador and Peru. (All Peru in those days.) Guillermo talked a nun into letting us go underneath and see the catacombs. It was creepy and cool at the same time. This is Guille's nephew Jorge Andres with us.
