Colonial Church

Incredibly serene, wonderful sense of Peruvian faith. Church was in full use during our visit, nice to know tourist attractions are still used by the normal people.

We paid a local tour guide in the church to give us a guided tour, and learned a lot about the history of this church. A bonus is that you can climb some very narrow stairs into the towers at the front of the church, and get a unique view over the historic market place.

Although Cusco has a lot of churches I did like this one a lot and I think it was worth the entrance fee of S/. 10. A little leaflet provided some information; the main draw is definitely the altar, the largest in Peru, 21m high and covered in gilding. There are also decent views of the plaza from the bell...

This church is a very interesting place to be at the heart of the city centre of Cuzco. The altars are very impressive and the view from the clock tower is great.

Resplendent with the gold and other riches of Spanish plunder. Beautiful, unusual religious imagery.

It is a very pretty church and has a beautiful view from its windows to the Plaza de Armas, when we visited it was empty, I did not find it very touristic, but it is a nice place to visit.

I was surprised to be charged 10 sol to visit this church ....... afterall it's a church. The alter is very decorative. ....... but no photos allowed. You can go upstairs to see the view of the main plaza. Overall nice but not worth the entrance fee.
