A must see in Cusco. We took the self-guided tour, which took approximately 40 minutes and it was well worth it.

Beautiful carvings and history in this church. The carved pulpit alone is worth the visit! There is a small entrance fee, but you can get the audio tour (I recommend doing this) and you get a great historic overview of the artwork and history. Excellent site to visit.

What a fantastic place but a guide is essential to get all the history. No flash photos. The carvings are amazing.

We purchased the Boleto Turistico Del Cusco. This and other churches were not included on that ticket, but the admission was worth it on our guided tour.

We loved this church the most of all the churches in Cuzco. It is simply awesomely beautiful. Great interior, fantastic murals and paintings. A very meditative place.

I enjoyed visiting San blas church as part of the religious ticket which for 30 soles included San cristobal church, Cuzco cathedral, and religious art museum. This was an excellent value and a great way to spend the day. No photos inside but you can get photos from the bell tower that are quite fantastic.

Right next to san blas water fountain. Not a big church, but still the decorations are wonderfully done.

Small but awesome.. Intricate chapel, but its main attraction is the pulpit! The most intricate and beautiful of Cusco.. Notice the real scull at its top
