  • It costs 10 soles and 5 for student. Show you the Cathedral inside in addition to passing by a few small rooms of Museum where you can see different religious instruments of gold, silver and bright. A guide which is paid with tip which is also to take photos is assigned. I think that most beautiful of this tour are the bells and the interior of the Church.

  • They do not allow you to take pictures in some parts of the Museum by the same policies, but otherwise, very good guide that we had, excellent. You have to pay 10 soles per person and 5 by the Guide, tip can be left to the Guide.
