It has a beautiful altar, but unfortunately, that's it. You can also go to the top which is nice, but I don't think it's worth the 10 soles price they charge. It is worth if you buy the "Circuito Religioso Arzobispal" ticket in which you can go to the cathedral, San Blas, San Cristóbal and Museu Arzobispal. One good thing... More

Only by entering the unassuming church at the top of the hill (well as far as tourists venture) in the building is the most elaborate and breathtaking carving of the altar pieces and pulpit. Take the audio guide - worth while and take a walk up the campanile to take in the view of the city and San Blas square... More

The church may not be very eye catching from its exteriors but the interiors are a different story altogether. The architecture style and the works inside are impressive and definitely made it worth the trip I took for here. View is also good from up here.

There are several things to see in San Blas so definitely take the time to visit San Blas. This is not as nice as the churches in the main plaza but still a nice stop while in San Blas. DO NOT MISS SAN BLAS area.

It is a steep climb from Plaza de Armas to the church of San Blas through small streets. The church is smaller than several others and not as ornate as most. The walk to get there was the best part of the adventure.

Billed as the most impressive in the Latin world, the pulpit is really something to see. Don’t be put off by the modest exterior of the church. The interior is where it’s at. Most guide books will walk you through what you’re looking at, but make sure that you get an explanation by either book or guide (guides are available... More

The sumum of Cusco style and masters. Audio guide. Included in the Archbishop ticket. 40 minutes should suffice.

At the top of the small Plaza San Blas sit the Iglesia de San Blas. Outside, the building is nondescript, but inside is an alter that is overwhelming, a carved masterpiece of Baroque grandeur...along the walls are liturgical themed paintings, which although in need of conservation, are well worth a second look.

Definitely worth a visit this is a beautiful church with lots of history. Cheap entry and a free audio tour to boot!
