Can someone who has actually been there around Santo Domingo church/ qorikancha on Sunday tell me whether they're open on sunday morning at all, and if so what time? I get totally conflicting information from my net search and guidebook, with some saying they're open as usual, some saying they're open from 2 pm etc. My current schedule only allows me to be in Cusco till noon on Sunday, so if it won't be open till 2 pm i probably have to reschedule my flight, although that means i will have to skip Lima, which i'd like to avoid if possible. Thanks in advance!
Qorikancha is open from 2pm to 5:30 pm on sundays, the rst of the week is open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.
i don't know what time it is open but i loved seeing it from the inside. i didn't have a guide but still enjoyed it. there are signs on the walls that you can read. you can also get a guide inside if you wish. i loved the inca stonework and then the church on top...sad but beautiful.
We also were thre during the week, so I reall can't tell if they are open Sundays
I can't answer your question about Koricancha, but I can say that we scheduled 5 days in Lima at the end of our trip, and I really wish I'd spent more time in Arequipa (more than the two nights) and/or more time in Cusco. I found Lima to be a loud, dirty, unattractive city, and I was really looking forward to visiting it.
My one exception (I'm an archaeologist) was Huaca Pucllana in Miraflores.
I have been there one Sunday quite time ago (2001) and everything was close. So, I really do not know if it is open or close now. I recommend not to be there on Sunday, just in case.
I was there during the week so I'm not totally sure however I feel like hearing our guide say they were open as usual on the weekends. To be honest, in my opinion if you are on a time schedule and will not have a guide throughout Qorikancha it will be hard to know what you are looking at anyway. You could always go, if it is not open until later, take some pictures and enjoy the amazing architecture from the outside then take off. Just my two cents.
