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.

Charming interiors, lots of frescos, I found it very peaceful to escape the hustle outside. Beautiful collection of gold and silver religious implements
A good "off the beaten track"c easily accessible from the main square

They charged you 20 soles more than 5$ just to pray to go. We asked why and she mistreated us. It makes no sense to pay just to pray. Another thing is if you want to donate.

It was a unique experience to be inside and look at the religious items. The design and artistery were amazing. Not to be missed.

I visited the museum, which is beautiful. The architecture, grounds and exhibits are all beautiful, especially the room with all the gold artifacts. Don't miss the library - it's amazing. It's not on the main Cusco tourist ticket, but well worth a visit.

The church is beautiful. There is a square with a snake on the grass infront of the church.
When you arrive in Cusco you learn everything about its trilogy. That said you'll understand how you start seeing pumas, condors and snakes everywhere.

We really enjoyed our visit of the convent. The art painted on the walls and the architecture of the courtyard really depicts the history and culture of Cusco. A must!

This church is lovely and in a bustling tourist town it nearly offers a sanctuary of normality. A must visit!

We stopped here a little before 2:00. They opened around 2:10.
The inside rooms were gradually opened over the next 20-25 minutes.

The paintings were good but the gold and silver artifacts, contained in the indoor rooms, were outstanding. Glad we went but I recommend going in the morning or late afternoon when things are probably better organized.

The nuns make divine and yummy cakes and cookies that are sold very inexpensively to support local charities

a tour guide is very helpful understanding the basic history and appreciating the effects of the earthquake and tremors in the city. the trapezoids to steady the building and dissipate the shock show why the Inca structures stood while the later Spanish ones took a topple in the "big" one in the 1500s.
