It has a nice view and very close to main square. If you are lazy to keep going up, you can still have a great view from Cusco centro.

Try the walk from the plaza (Centro Histórtico) till' this church; when you get to the top you get to see Cuzco.

It's not apparent from the City map but San Cristobal is a fair old climb. The interior of the church cannot compare with the riches in the Cathedral and its Jesuit neighbour but you can climb up the bell tower and be rewarded with great...More

San Cristóbal is situated on a hill above Cuszco. It’s a fair hike up the hill but well worth it. You can get a taxi up or down. The church is fairly small and no photos allowed. Entry PEN 10 which is about AUD$4. You...More

San Cristobal Church overlooks Cusco, and is quite visible from the historic centre/Plaza de Armas. There are great views of Cusco from the top. There was a solitary lady in local garb offering her wares for sale. Worth the visit.

We stopped here as we were walking down from Christo Blanco. The view from the yard is expansive. We opted not to pay to enter a church.

We were on our way looking for the colonial aquaducto when we heard live music coming from this church- we headed that way and found a full fledged community gathering and celebration/mourning of the lost babies. We watched traditional dancing , Ate Alpaca, mystery sausage,...More
