The wooden pulpit and the view from the bell tour are tremendous. My favourite thing in cusco. Went as a part of the religious circuit ticket which is 30 sol for 4 churchs.

We toured many churches but this was my favorite. Small entrance fee and the carved alters and intimate feeling of this church exceeded my expectations. Make sure you walk to the Choir Balcony for the best view.

Stunning architecture, with lots of hidden messages. Please take time to read the history of Cusco before. IF you are single and wanted to marry...just leave a letter to San Antonio!

We visited this Church as part of a full day city tour with Valentin Pachamama Journey's. We learned so much history about this beautiful cathedral, I can't believe it's still used as a church and not only a museum. You are not allowed to take...More
