The art collection is stunning and teaches you an enormous amount about colonial Cuzco. The rooms about Diego Quispe are a complete surprise - I can't say more without spoiling it. Overall a delight for anyone with any training in art history.

At first we had to ask for people for the 12 angled stone. If it were not for the guide that we met close to the stone, the visit would have been lost.

How the Incas managed to build these amazing structures with their bare hands never ceases to amaze. Truly an incredible place to visit.

Beautiful building that illustrates what the church did to eliminate the local culture. The doors and floors are uniquely ornate, the central patio with the fountain is very pretty too.

It's a nice building, with a central courtyard. The art was not overwhelming, and we thought it odd that the management thought it okay to allow mangy dogs to wander throughout. I was glad that it was part of the S30 combined ticket I had bought to visit the Cathedral and several other religious buildings in town (as the value... More

It was a small museum, many of the pieces on loan elsewhere and no signage with explanations. I did not find it worthwhile

I came here as I bought the combination ticket at the cathedral. I didn't bother with the audioguide, having just done the cathedral audioguide, so just wandered solo instead. It is a stunning building and the art is good, and the courtyard a peaceful place to sit if you wish. Worth investing in the small extra on the base cathedral... More

Here you will find the 12 angles rock... BUT... you can get one of the painters there to show you another couple of walls, just around the corner. It's amazing! You pay them whatever you want or buy one painting, and they will show you those walls. In one of them you can see a Puma on the wall, but... More
