They're doubtless worried that tourists snapping photos will ruin the ambience. To the contrary: this chapel is largely deserted and many of it's features are not particularly memorable without photographs. Maybe that's okay, though.

We were a bit disappointed. There are no information about the things inside the church. The audioguide is not available anymore and there aren't any other explanations. And for the 10 Soles, there is not a lot to see compared to other places in Cusco,...More

this church is an older church bearing the scars of times past, the memories written in the steps form the millions of footsteps leading inside. A quaint church in a wonderful part of town. Many hang outside in the evenings and people watch, I found...More

This colonial church as a beautiful carved wood pulpit as its main attraction. Other sculptures and paintings are nice too.

We had a lovely guided tour of the Church and learned a lot of history. Our guide, Abdon, was very knowledgeable. I suggest to always have a guide so that you learn about the history, architecture, and paintings.

Cusco is loaded with churches. Most,of,them are stunning and enormous. San Blas church is much smaller than the main ones but beautiful in its own right. You get a great view of the city from the second floor. It sits right in the center of...More

I'm not a fan of churches, but this one is smaller and more intimate than most, and certainly more than the main Cusco Cathedral. The big feature here (for me, anyway) was the exquisite and extremely elaborate wooden pulpit. Just extraordinary. Go just to see...More

I had heard about this church and about its amazingly carved intricate pulpit which is not without its humor. The audio guide is free with your ticket (which is very little) and makes the trip very enjoyable, pointing out details that would otherwise pass you...More
