A must to visit

The most beautiful church I have ever seen. The church is made out of gold and a must to visit for any tourist going to Cusco.

Catholic church with a beautiful structure, good to know more about the process of colonization of Peru (near the viewpoint of San Blas)

I know, it's another church. But each have their own unique flare. And most are free so it's a nice stop while walking through the plaza. This church has a lot of gold guild

San Blas is located a few blocks from the Plaza del Armas, so its within walking distance from the main shopping and historical areas. Outside is a wonderful water fountain and from the top of the fountain you can get great views of Cuzco

Its located in the center of San Blas. What's more interesting is the handcraft and small cafe around it. There is Cheesecake cafe, Crepe Cafe, and Vegetarian restaurant near by

The San Blas church is a visit worth for sure. A great interesting altar and a antique well-crafted pulpit.

This church and its plaza are quite unique and beautiful. The fountain here and restaurants on the plaza make this a great place to spend some time.

Worth the time spent. Many things to see. Nominal cost. Beautifully ornate gold work. A guided tour would add a lot to the experience.

This s a beautiful little church that is worth a visit. You will be given an audio cassette in English (or other languages) that will explain what you are seeing and give you background information. The tour can be done in around 45 minutes.
