They must have blown the budget after constructing the altar...solid gold. This is part of a museum pass you can use to see all the churches efficiently.

We were on a walking tour of San Blas, and this old parish church was very lovely. The inside was small but had a lot of interesting artifacts to look at. Note you were not allowed to take pictures.But the architecture was just beautiful.

San Blas Church was built in 1560 during the colonial period. It houses a masterpiece of carpentry and wood carving that is the Baroque pulpit and is the oldest parish church in Cusco. Its has a gold-leaf principal altar which is stunning.

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.
