All over Peru you will hear about the Last Supper painting with Peruvian influencers. You will find it here along with an incredible collection of religious artwork. If you see only 1 cathedral in Peru, I think it should be this one.

A Catholic church that contains elements of local traditions. The interior is quite grand and is definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful imposing cathedral in the center of Cuzco! It is better to hire a guide if you want to hear about the history of the place. I think around 1 hour is enough there!

The small cathedral was amazing and we loved their local version of the Last Supper featuring a guinea pig.

Large beautiful cathedral, worth touring. We hired a guide to get a understanding of the history and artwork in the church. There were several English speaking guides at the front entrance.

A beautiful cathedral, well worth a look inside, its a shame you are not allowed to use your camera and they have people watching out all around the cathedral. It has an Irish bar opposite if you fancy a tipple afterwards.

My husband nor I are religious in any way, but still thoroughly enjoyed the walk through this historical church. It is very reasonably priced. The crypt was a little creepy in my opinion, but the church and choir are BEAUTIFUL!

No need to book in advance. You should be able to get in during the day unless there is a reason that the church is closed.
