Religious Museums in Cusco

We have already seen some museums in Cusco so now it is time to mention the religious ones. Out of seventeen churches, convents and monasteries in and around the historical center, nine of them open their doors as museums also.

Catedral-Compania

The Religious Tour in Cusco:

In addition to the Boleto Turístico, you can also get the Boleto Integral in case you want to visit these religious attractions:

The Cathedral (plus Triunfo and Sagrada Familia churches), S/25
The Archbishop, Art Religious Museum, S/15
San Blas church, S/15
San Cristobal temple, S/10 (see a hike to this site and other attractions nearby)

You can buy this Boleto Integral in any of these places for S/50 and it lasts 10 days. The visit is everyday including Sundays and holidays but they open at different hours (the Cathedral opens as late as 10am). Closing time is 6pm, but San Cristobal is closed at 5pm.

You can also visit them separately (the individual rates are to the right of each place).

The Combined Ticket

This boleto is another good choice too because you can visit these two high spots for just S/15:

The Santo Domingo convent – Qorikancha
The Santa Catalina monastery museum

They both share the same opening hours: Monday to Saturday from 8:30 to 5:30 and Sunday 2 to 5pm (the Convent opens even on holidays).

The partial ticket costs S/10 and S/8, respectively (for further information, please check their websites).
