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.

I went in here without a guide as I had free time. I wish I had a guide to help explain more about it. The architecture is superb and the crypts are something else, the smell really gives an ambience.

Jaw dropping architecture. We freely walked around inside the church before the tour. It is just stunning, the immense detail and sheer size is amazing. They were holding mass as we arrived and did not mind at all us walking around, partly bc its so big. The tour then gives you access to the adjascent rooms and corridors. The catacombs were cool too, note that it is very musty down there and with bones of literally thousands of people.

I had a very good tour with a young girl practicing her English. The tour was very interesting and informative and I learnt of the history of the convent, the artworks and the catecombs. Well worth a visit.

Pay to enter the church of San Francisco and take a tour of the beautiful and stunning art work and catacombs. The paintings are hundreds of years old, and some are the biggest in South America. They say they don’t allow photos inside the church, but our guide also told us that if we were very discreet, we could take some photos - and we did. Well worth the price to walk around inside

This was one of the best musemus in Cusco, and sadly not included in the general tourist ticket that provides access to 16 sites. With some impressive catacombs and human remains, the true gems are the hundreds of paintings that are not as preserved as they could, since the museum has no government support. Guided visit is included in the admission cost, so it is definitely worthwhile. A must see for all tourists, before all its incredible art dissapears or is further damaged!

Although not allowed to take pictures in most areas, this museum is worth a visit. Very informative English guides who spoke with passion.

Among the five cathedrals & churches I visited in Cusco, this was the "only one" with human remains to see in the catacombs down below (about 4 of them which are kind of spread out in various parts of the Cathedral), and here the remains are "seen naturally" without glass covers (unlike those at San Francisco in Lima although not as plentiful of them here as at that cathedral). And just as great as the underground, there's the part "up above" which is the tower & the adjacent part of the roof from which the view is just "a breathtaking one" with the red rooftops stretching from the vicinity of this cathedral all the way to the mountains surrounding the city. Also, quite awesome along a stairway is a "huge tapestry" (the scene of which I can't recall since no "indoor photos" are allowed here) which according to my guide is like one of the three largest tapestries (seen in a cathedral) in the world.

At a close vicinity (within about a 5-minute walk) of the "main square" Plaza de Armas, the best way is along the street from the southwest corner of the Square (the corner near Church of Compania de Jesus) until you see the "small gate" where this cathedral is just shortly to the right of that gate without having to go through it (but which you can do so later to get to San Pedro Market at about another 5 minutes from the gate).

And yes, "special thanks" are to my guide, a nice lady named Umpiro, for the great tour (especially for the catacombs & the tower/rooftop which are the parts of the Cathedral you can only go with a guide).

Plaza San Francisco, immediately west of the central Plaza de Armas, is home to this wonderful example of the order of San Francisco Assisi and their churches/convents /monasteries. Meticulously preserved and maintained while still operational and hosting a religious school for local youth, should not be missed by any fan of the historical and art persuasion. English speaking Guides are included in the 15sol price of admission and recommended, they won't expect tips as they are dedicated caretakers of the church. Don't be too disappointed by the catacombs as they are sparse and probably featured just to drive the curious tourist traffic.

We paid 15 soles to enter the museum and it was very worth it! It includes a guide that takes you through everything and explains the history behind it. Our guide was amazing, one of the best we ever had. The catacombs are small but very interesting tales about it. The choir was one of our favorite places to see. Also the biggest painting in Latin America!
