A Brief stop

Worth the time spent. Many things to see. Nominal cost. Beautifully ornate gold work. A guided tour would add a lot to the experience.

This s a beautiful little church that is worth a visit. You will be given an audio cassette in English (or other languages) that will explain what you are seeing and give you background information. The tour can be done in around 45 minutes.

Step inside into another world - a beautiful space with well cared for Icons and many beautiful paintings to look at and small hidden doors to discover - Take a moment to sit in one of the pews and absorb the atmosphere

This is another old historical church, one of many in Cusco. It has an amazing parapet, and altar and some interesting pictures on the wall. You can go up the small steeple for a reasonable view around San Blas. If you have the church pass it is worth going. Again no photos!

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.
