  • Get a guided tour at the door and take YOUR TIME. Dont rush, is an interesting visit. These are 3 churches joined inside at the Plaza de Armas. Worth the time and the money.  more »
  • Very nice, it is worthwhile to explore it, beautiful sculptures and carvings, is almost a must-see, although they charge entrance (almost to all churches charge you income) do not charge only when are in mass. As in most of these places in Peru, photos can not be removed.
