This is a MUST see attraction. Again we the help of a guide one can truly appreciate the significance of this beautiful church. Amongst the numerous beautiful art is the most interesting ''last supper'' painting were the disciples eat Cuy (BBQ guinea pig) and drink Peruvian beer instead of bread and wine. There are numerous examples of methods used to... More

Resplendent with the gold and other riches of Spanish plunder. Beautiful, unusual religious imagery.

It is a very pretty church and has a beautiful view from its windows to the Plaza de Armas, when we visited it was empty, I did not find it very touristic, but it is a nice place to visit.

I was surprised to be charged 10 sol to visit this church ....... afterall it's a church. The alter is very decorative. ....... but no photos allowed. You can go upstairs to see the view of the main plaza. Overall nice but not worth the entrance fee.

Impressive but completely ruined by the extortionate entry price. YES, you read that correctly... Not a tour price, BUT AN ENTRY FEE, to a working, practicing church! :( UNFORGIVABLE!

It is not as magnificent as I expected after reading that the Jesuits tried to make that the main / best church in Cusco. The advantage of this church is that you can go up the stairs and have a nice viewpoint of the square from the window. 10 soles per adult.

We took our time looking around the church like the others where they do not allow photos. It was an interesting walk up the stairs to see the view of the plaza.

The Church itself is nice to walk around, has lots of history and good value for 5 sol. The highlight is the views that you get from the top of the Church which look across the square.

The church is not as large as the cathedral but the altar is very impressive, it's 21 meters high and all gold plated. We hired a local guide inside (Clotilde, or as she likes to be called, Cloti ) and that made the visit more enjoyable and helped us understand better. We highly recommend to visit the church and to... More

This Cathedral is gorgeous! We toured inside, and the art work of the altar was very nice. The views from the towers are great too. Very historical!
