Great cathedral which includes a free audio tour. We didnt have our passports with us only photocopies so were only allowed one audio guide to share. Tip - take your passport so you can get one each. The audio guide was interesting and covered lots of the history of the cathedral and Catholicism in Peru. Well worth paying to get in to!

This is a must see in Cusco. Just a beautiful cathetral. No pictures were allowed, what a shame. There is a lot to see and take in. I always love visiting cathedrals all over the world. This one will not disappoint. You can go down into the catacombs. There are grand alters. Don't miss this.

Fab views from outside which took my breath away. However thought entry fee was very expensive so didnt enter. Pity as would have loved to see if the inside was as magical as the outside

Very accessible. There was a small vendor fair that was held on the grounds of the Cathedral. You can get a tour in many languages if you wish. Peaceful

This has to be a must see. The inside of this building is flipping huge and the decoration would put many European cathedrals to shame. We had a guide which was worth it to explain the many private gold plated alerts around the sides, the last supper painting, the main silver alter, the 7th inca stone, and the truly amazing carved wooden choir stalls. It may be S/25 per person to get in, but well worth it. Its just a shame no photos at all are allowed.
