This ruin was once the most important temple of the Incas, which was later used as a base for the Church of Santo Domingo when the Spanish conquered the city.

We visited this place as it was included in our packaged ticket for Cusco ruins (the Boleto Turistico Del Cusco is130 soles for 7 days), but I found the museum could be better curated, and we could have better spent our time visiting other ruins.

Catholics will enjoy this very much and anyone interested in the history of the area. Some pre-Columbian relics remain.

It was the place where we learned how the old relegation was integrated into the new and how, in some subjects, the Quetchua (headed by Inka) were scientifically evolved. Undoubtedly worth a visit.

This was absolutely amazing and interesting place to visit. We especially liked the paintings and sculptures . The way it was built to escape earthquake damage was also interesting

I came here as part of a tour that saw multiple sites. Having a tour guide explain the history of the structures made the visit much better, but this is definitely a stop you can skip. We had a very short visit and this is...More

As you are not allowed to wander around the Convent on your own, you are taken around the building by an 'in-house' guide anyway. Our was fine and did a good job of highlighting all the points of interest.
