Wonderful afternoon spent at the Monasterio Santa Catalina. Such a rich history and beautiful architecture. We hired one of the guides inside the Convent, highly recommended for the history and context. This is a must stop in Arequipa, which is itself such a wonderful city...More

My Family enjoyed a self-guided tour here on a rainy day. This is a beautiful structure to take photos and the experience was very educational. Great Place to visit when in Cusco.

I found Convento de Santa to be a very interesting tour for history and the architecture of this massive structure in Cusco. The history presented was just average in content.

When you are in Cusco you have to make choises to see and feel the history. But do not miss this. The overwhelming massive structure and the art is worth to make a visit

The walk around the convent with the guide was educational and interesting. The convent is somewhat shabby but interesting nonetheless.

Combines both inca ruins and convent in one location, interesting to see the building techniques used by the incas

Cusco has *a lot* of Catholic sites, and I get "cathedraled out" quite quickly, so I limited myself to this site (since it seemed different) and Santo Domingo. While you can't visit the nunnery itself, you can visit the museum that documents how nuns lived...More
