If you are a Catholic, you might wish to go there for a pray. If you are not, which is my case, it may still be somewhat interesting, if it is included in the City Tour, anyway. When I visited, some ceremony was going on, and, unlike the pop music one hears in many Catholic churches nowadays, the Andean-style music... More
