Interesting

I had a very good tour with a young girl practicing her English. The tour was very interesting and informative and I learnt of the history of the convent, the artworks and the catecombs. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful
Sep 2019 • Family
Pay to enter the church of San Francisco and take a tour of the beautiful and stunning art work and catacombs. The paintings are hundreds of years old, and some are the biggest in South America. They say they don’t allow photos inside the church, but our guide also told us that if we were very discreet, we could take some photos - and we did. Well worth the price to walk around inside

A hidden gem in Cusco, not usually included in traditional tours
Jul 2019 • Couples
This was one of the best musemus in Cusco, and sadly not included in the general tourist ticket that provides access to 16 sites. With some impressive catacombs and human remains, the true gems are the hundreds of paintings that are not as preserved as they could, since the museum has no government support. Guided visit is included in the admission cost, so it is definitely worthwhile. A must see for all tourists, before all its incredible art dissapears or is further damaged!

Great small museum

Although not allowed to take pictures in most areas, this museum is worth a visit. Very informative English guides who spoke with passion.

Cusco's catacombs :)
Dec 2018 • Solo
Among the five cathedrals & churches I visited in Cusco, this was the "only one" with human remains to see in the catacombs down below (about 4 of them which are kind of spread out in various parts of the Cathedral), and here the remains are "seen naturally" without glass covers (unlike those at San Francisco in Lima although not as plentiful of them here as at that cathedral). And just as great as the underground, there's the part "up above" which is the tower & the adjacent part of the roof from which the view is just "a breathtaking one" with the red rooftops stretching from the vicinity of this cathedral all the way to the mountains surrounding the city. Also, quite awesome along a stairway is a "huge tapestry" (the scene of which I can't recall since no "indoor photos" are allowed here) which according to my guide is like one of the three largest tapestries (seen in a cathedral) in the world.

At a close vicinity (within about a 5-minute walk) of the "main square" Plaza de Armas, the best way is along the street from the southwest corner of the Square (the corner near Church of Compania de Jesus) until you see the "small gate" where this cathedral is just shortly to the right of that gate without having to go through it (but which you can do so later to get to San Pedro Market at about another 5 minutes from the gate).

And yes, "special thanks" are to my guide, a nice lady named Umpiro, for the great tour (especially for the catacombs & the tower/rooftop which are the parts of the Cathedral you can only go with a guide).

Franciscan church, museum and burial crypts.
Jan 2019 • Couples
Plaza San Francisco, immediately west of the central Plaza de Armas, is home to this wonderful example of the order of San Francisco Assisi and their churches/convents /monasteries. Meticulously preserved and maintained while still operational and hosting a religious school for local youth, should not be missed by any fan of the historical and art persuasion. English speaking Guides are included in the 15sol price of admission and recommended, they won't expect tips as they are dedicated caretakers of the church. Don't be too disappointed by the catacombs as they are sparse and probably featured just to drive the curious tourist traffic.

So much history
Sep 2018 • Couples
We paid 15 soles to enter the museum and it was very worth it! It includes a guide that takes you through everything and explains the history behind it. Our guide was amazing, one of the best we ever had. The catacombs are small but very interesting tales about it. The choir was one of our favorite places to see. Also the biggest painting in Latin America!

Jun 2018 • Solo
I only went in here by accident, thinking it was just a small church. In fact it's a museum and catacombs. S15 to get in, which includes an English-speaking guide. It's two stories with cloisters, choir, library, refectotu, chapels and a huge beautiful church. Only 3 brothers left - it once housed 180. Rebuilt/ restored after 1650 & 1950 earthquakes, but there is a LOT of original carvings & religious artwork, chests, manuscripts/ books. It also boasts one of the (allegedly) biggest paintings in South America. The church is decorated (relatively) simply but is huge & very impressive. A real find.

Great piece of history

Don't miss the catacumbas and try to review the history of Lima before visit this place. If you suffer claustrophobia just skip it.
