  • A fairly complete overview of the history of Peru in a few blocks away. Has with an office of tourism with a guide free that comes out in schedules point and you takes to take the place in a pleasant walk. Tip to choice.

  • The cost to enter is accessible and the guidance is good. The facilities are well preserved. The tour of the catacombs is very short, despite being the most interesting part, since one has to watch out for the Guide. Improve the time of the tour, making it a little more long, and allowing take photos and/or videos, since not is allow in all the travel. If you like them visits cultural, is a stop mandatory.

  • Much I liked since the explanation is clear and well organized groups. A place full of history that is very well kept, clean. If you like the story this speaks of the evangelization of the people Peruvian. I liked since the explanation is clear and well organized groups. full of history that is very well preserved, clean.
