Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This museum is right in the center of Cusco - the famous Inca wall with the 12 sides is part of the foundation! The museum has an interesting history as originally being one of the conquistador's home. There are amazing colonial era paintings giving an idea of what life was like. The building itself is beautiful. The museum is fairly small and you can see it in an hour.

We toured this sacred museum and we all loved it, interesting things to appreciate and the 12 angle stone gives it an extra bonus.

Walking into this museum you can see the great patios from the old houses in Cusco. The tile work is amazing and the pieces donated by Mr. Orihuela Yabar are a great treasure for the Archdiocese of Cusco.
Walking in the rooms gives you an idea on how people used the artifacts and how the pictures decorated with gold leaf make the room extraordinary and beautiful.

We wandered down a small alley. Along one was were huge and amazing rocks fitted perfectly to create a wall. The Incans were very talented.

The Archbishop’s Palace is included in the Ticket for Religious Circuit (CTR). The CTR also includes entry to the Cathedral complex and the Church of San Blas. The Palace was built on the foundation of the Inca Roca Palace and formerly owned by the Archbishop of Cusco. Today it houses a collection of colonial religious paintings in the style known as the Escuela Cusquena (Cusco School). The reason you want to visit: The Museum is in a narrow pedestrian walkway that features Inca stone walls and the famous “Stone of 12 Angles” (since it’s part of the building's outer wall, you can view for free at any time). The interior has Moorish style architecture with carved cedar ceilings and doors and a beautiful arched stone courtyard. Worth a short walk-through if you bought the CTR.

We accidently bought the combination ticket for the cathedrals and this museum, or we would have skipped it. It's all old religious paintings, with zero explanation. If you buy the combo ticket and have time to go, fine, otherwise it's definitely not worth it.

I rather enjoyed strolling through this museum. There were a couple of stained glass windows that caught my eye. I also saw a painting of Mary in a gold dress that was beautiful. Other art pieces were nice as well. I am not sure this would be on my top 10 list to do in Cusco.

The tour groups do not care that the Peruvian people are trying to get through here to get somewhere. They just stand in the middle of the street, blocking everyone from getting by so they can get their precious photos. Sad.

You have to see this if you go to Cusco. Nobody can explain how they did it. These wall have survived time and earthquakes. Look across the alley and compare it to Spanish stonework. You will be amazed.
