  • It's majestic! It is as beautiful inside as outside. I love to visit churches and this one is unforgettable.  more »
  • What a wealth! The flamboyant Baroque art is certainly excessive but shows the Catholic fervor of our forefathers with all the excesses that are not mystical. The richness of the collection of paintings is extraordinary. It's a must-see.

  • Visit with a guide tour only. Surprisingly there were not many people participating in the tour. Only me and another tourist. The guide was assigned from the cathedral and spoke very good English. The tour was very interesting and included the visit to the rooftop and the bell tower.
  • Beautiful building with Neo classical style architecture. Nothing special on the inside, just like a regular Catholic Church with some museum prices of display. It is mandatory to enter with a guide (additional 5 soles per person).
