  • If you are visiting Cusco, you hopefully find all of this religious and Inca/Spanish history interesting. San Blas is know as the artsy center and the church is rather small compared to others in the ...  more »
  • We went with a guide who explained the history and the links to the incas who were here first. If you go either take a guide or a good guide book to explain it. 
  • It is small, old and beautiful. Its walls, pulpit, altar exude history and art. They give you an audio guide so you can take it without a guide. Go!

  • 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.
