A must when visiting Cusco, worth the steep entrance fee. Only disappointment, you can't take pictures inside and there is no gift shop of sorts.

It's a very beautiful cathedral, and good for them putting the time and effort to rehab the original work. I just wish it didn't smell like chemicals everywhere. I bought a rosary here, which is pretty hard to find outside cathedrals.

Enjoyed the experience and color commentary offered by our guided tour. But, there's plenty to see and admire without one. Don't miss a local artist's homage to Da Vinci's Last Supper.

Great tour. Can go on your own but I would go with guide. I learned about the Catholic invasion and made slave out of Inka's. But very beautiful.

Beautiful church completely gold leafed. Virtually nothing is not gold. Interesting symmetry everywhere you look. Well worth a visit. No pictures allowed inside, though.

As churches go you should see this one! The Spanish evangelizing is so prevalent in Cusco and churches demonstrate this. The grandeur and opulence cannot be denied.

Very interesting historical architecture. The art work is fascinating with many paintings and sculptures. The Last Supper painting is very different! We attended several masses here during our time in Cusco. The choir and organ music at the Sunday morning mass was very lovely. We...More

No need to book in advance. You should be able to get in during the day unless there is a reason that the church is closed.
