not sure why our tour guide brought us to this church but skipped the cathedral in Cusco. This is a small village church in a desperate need of some major restoration/renovation, even the organs were broken. I would skip this one and stayed longer in...More

Unbelievably magnificent church with inner frescoes and mosaics well preserved. Great view of the valley near the church. P.S. photo taking prohibited inside :(
