The church is very nice on the outside and in the inside. The ticket allowed you to get inside the church, in the two towers (with a nice view to the plaza de armas) it also has a underground part with a very nice thing with the sounds... As soon as you get in some guides offers tours, I think you should take... I did cause i think is very nice to get to know the history behind it :)

The interior is nowhere as impressive as the cathedral. However it does contain probably the most impressive, biggest, and simply spectacular gold covered alter in all the Cusco churches.
The S/10 entrance fee per person also gains you access to the two towers for great views over the Plaza de Amas.

I went to mass here on a Sunday morning and so not an official tour. The church is very grandiose and has a lot of things similar in other Baroque colonial style places. The high altar, made with gold plundered from the Inca empire, shines underneath the lights and is quite a sight (certainly not one you can get from photos). There are quite a few paintings which are incredibly stunning, and I remember one of the shrines that had a sort of eery green glow on the right which definitely made La Compania stand out to me. It does have a sort of peaceful feeling (despite the violent history surrounding the conquest of this part of Cusco).

We went during mass on early Sunday , that is a good time to visit since you don't get to pay the entrance fee and if you are catholic you get two birds with one stone.
