We had a guide who took our small group through the chapel and cathedral. You will see the famous Last Supper with the guinea pig (cuy) in the center of the table. Also, the black Jesus. It is memorable and we were glad we visited....More

Our Gate 1 guide helped us to see the fusion of the old Incan religion and Catholicism. One of the most notable paintings is the Last Supper where Passover is celebrated by eating cuy (guinea pig )

We did not have time to go inside the Cuzco Cathedral but the building looks impressive outside, a lot of entertainment and shows of natives are happening in front of the cathedral.

Definitely worth a visit to see how much the Spanish took from the Incas..! 30% of everything went to the church and this is reflected here. Even if you are not religious, there are some premier attractions inside..black Jesus and the last supper (Version 237)...More

Visited this cathedral on a whim. It is huge, gorgeous, fascinating. Highly recommended. It's right on the Plaza de Armas. No photos allowed inside.

Well worth a visit - to do it justice you need lots of time and a guide. You really have 3 churches in one here. Amazing amount of silver and gold leaf used and lots of paintings.

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.
