Lovely church, well maintained. Intricate alter is said to be carved from a single piece of wood; remarkable if true. Not much of a view from the bell tower, beyond the square below. We stayed up the street and would not have made the visit otherwise. After the visit, we ate a great meal in the restaurant across the plaza, Pacha Papa.

Cusco is loaded with churches. Most,of,them are stunning and enormous. San Blas church is much smaller than the main ones but beautiful in its own right. You get a great view of the city from the second floor. It sits right in the center of the San Blas square.

My daughter and I did a do-it-yourself tour of Peru in December of 2015.
We started in Lima, traveled to Nazca then to Cusco, Puno, Arequipa and back to Lima.
We saw and did much in our 2 week trip but left wishing we had spent less time in Lima, more time in Nazca, Arequipa and Machu Picchu. We enjoyed every minute of the trip including the absolutely brutal bus ride from Nazca to Cusco and some acute mountain sickness in Puno. My only regret was missing the sunrise on the Nazca lines at summer solstice.
The cathedrals, convents and monasteries were very nice everywhere we went but particularly magnificent in Cusco.
The street food is awesome and plentiful everywhere we went.
When I go back I'll likely spent most of my time in Nazca, Cusco and Arequipa but plan to spend much more off tour time in Machu Picchu.

I did the audio tour and it was only about 15 minutes, tops, but was very interesting. What's most interesting about this church is it's history and how much of its age is showing (in a good way). When you're done on the first floor, you can head up to the bell tower and get a great view of the city!

This church looks so ordinary from the outside but step inside and there is the most amazing backdrop to the Altar and a Pulpit carved completely out of one Andean Cedar tree. The sculpture work is unreal. You have to see it as no photos are allowed

A nice church, lot of colour and gold, easy to stroll around, wontbtake too long as it is not as big as the other historical buildings but definitely worth a visit as it is in the centre of the old historic town

You will be amazed at the hand carved detail in this church. The intricate wooden hand carved altar is a masterpiece. The main front altar contains an ornate crucifix, and golden religious statues. I believe this church's value could not be calculated as it appears priceless! A must see if you are in the area. A true treasure.

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

My friend and I wandered into this church on a whim after our visit to the San Blas plaza, and I am glad we did. There is a nice audio guide (in Spanish or English) that you can use to do a self-guided tour around the church. The art is magnificent and a wonderful example of the local style.

My favorite part was the elaborately carved pulpit in the front to the left. Look at the bottom, where carvings of Martin Luther, Calvin and various other heretics (from a Catholic perspective) are condemned to spend their days holding up the base of the pulpit.

This church is included in the religious ticket/boleto religioso.

This large pulpit is carved out of one tree and with an eye for detail that is unbelievable. The actual skull of the artist can be found on top of the pulpit. The church does charge 15 soles entrance fee, One of the most beautil church i have seen.
