Different periods are mixed in this museum. Take a guide, because the explanations make everything so much more interesting. Do not forget to go on the side of the toilets, where you'll find beautiful gardens.

This site is interesting enough but we felt it suffered from a bit of an identity crisis in that it doesn't know if it wants to be an Inka ruin or a Spanish colonial church. It is of course both but the two don’t crossover...More

It gives a bit a strange feeling to see the old inka walls on which the new christian building is constructed. But interesting anyway

We were with a group and did have a guide, and he was great. He gave us a lot of information that we might not have gotten otherwise.
