Best view in Cusco over the city from the bell tower. Only 10 soles. Everywhere around are reminders of new buildings erected on Inca foundations.

It's worth the short climb from the Plaza de Armas to the church to take in the sweeping views of the city. Many people said that the view of Cusco from Sacsayhuaman is the best, but I thought this was superior. You can see the...More

It is well worth the climb if you decide to walk up to the San Cristobal church. The view of Cuzco is magnificent from the plaza. The church is quaint and simpler than the Cathedral but much more spiritual.

Its worth the walk up to San Cristobal to both visit the church interior, and walk up the bell tower from where a vast panoramic view of Cusco will unfold.

We bought a packet of tickets at the Basilica and it included San Cristobal. On our walk back down from Saqsayhuaman we stopped in. The interior is smaller than most churches and the altar and naves are in the shape of the a Latin cross....More

Better than the towers of San Blas & San Francisco is the tower of this church which offers "higher & farther" views (to see "more of the city" than you can from the other two towers) and which is also the best among the three...More
