On the little square in the San Blas neighborhood of Cusco is the Iglesia de San Blas, a simple adobe church with one of the jewels of colonial art in the Americas.

The pulpit of San Blas, arguably Latin America's most ornate, is an intricately carved 17th-century cedar pulpit hewn from a single tree trunk and dominated by the triumphant figure of Christ.
