So much history and beautiful artwork here; I don't care what your religion is, this place will inspire you.

Although the statues are a little creepy, overall the museum gives a good insight into the life of a nun in a monastery.

At the gate we were in the line. We were separate out of the line. They prefer taking the tickets first from the white tourist.
After all, we were asked for ID card, what we do, if a we are catholic... This was really disgusting.
You really don’t feel like you are getting into the sacred place, instead you feel this is a big business place, with discriminator workers, where select people and treat really bad... We ruined our day.

One gets a good sense of monastic life in this visit. And the art they have--all Cusco School samples is terrific. It is a short but worthwhile visit.

This visit was one of favourite amongst the many museum etc we entered. Great displays and some of the art works are most interesting and very relevant to the period the monestry was operational. The heaven/ hell painting very clever.
We spent long time enjoying this very appropriate display. Well worth the entry fee.
