  • Located in the Plaza de San Blas, there just from the historic centre, surrounded by artisans (and not so much), and visited by the usual to see the flamboyant churches, and no cost... Obviable of course, but to be standing half a block was that we should enter... a church more... for us, nothing remarkable...

  • This colonial church as a beautiful carved wood pulpit as its main attraction. Other sculptures and paintings are nice too.  more »
  • You can not take pictures, but you can go up to a balcony for photos. In addition, we could see as they made preparations for the June festivities.

  • Nice church and view
  • Nice
  • Pictures not allowed.
  • Another wonderful church
  • Although hispter environment appears to wrap it, the plaza surrounding the temple is a place of placid and beautiful meeting. Ideal for visiting during religious festivals. During the celebration of the Virgin of Carmen, for example, the square becomes scene of music and celebration among the cusquenian, always friendly and jovial.
