  • 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. 
  • Church very rich in detail, especially at the altar. Important as part of the history of the city and of the Spanish colonization.

  • 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

  • Hermoso
  • Visit Church erected on an Inca sanctuary in the city of Cusco in Peru, the Temple of San Blas, and the thing I found most beautiful in the world, a jewel of colonial art, is a pulpit in the Plateresque style dedicated to the Virgin of the good created by a called evanista event Juan Tomas Tuirutupac Inca. It has 1,200 pieces with 70 different Cedar filigree figures, consists of a baffle, backrest, lid and Base where this reflected the image of the Virgen del Buen Suceso and the evangelists Matthew, mark, John and Luke.

  • Still maintaining and keeping its history despite the years, too bad that it is not open every day.
