This is a most interesting church. The 16th century murals by the Cusco Art Scool are breathtaking. The church was originally built by the Jesuits and many aspects of the Inca culture were incorporated in these beautiful murals. Later Dominicans did a makeover in sumptuous...More

Quite plain exterior but step inside and this church is breathtaking. Well worth a visit. Photography ban is not a problem as your admission includes a well produced CD with photos. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Out of Andahuaylillas is this church that looks like a small town chapel but don’t let this exterior facade fool you, inside the church the decors would truly enthralled and entranced you. The altar is gilded with gold and silver the walls have the paintings...More

A half-day tour of the Southern Valley is worth the effort if you have the time. We loved San Pedro Apostol de Andahuaylillas, known as the Sistine Chapel of the Andes. In my opinion the comparison is unfair to this beautiful church to the Sistine...More

As in many churches in Peru visitors are not allowed to take pictures.Which is bad, as the church is one of the most decorated and rich churches of the Andean Cordillera. A lot of gold, paintings, carved wood inside.

To compare the two is sacrilege. This is baroque, with a touch of Gaudi. Okay for a quick look see, but nothing more. Has a fair sized gift shop and toilets. Plenty of gilded structures. Full of tourists as it is on all the itineraries...More

It is bad that you cannot take photos inside. The place is gorgeous, be sure to go with a guide. Mornings are good times to visit, in the afternoon there are a lot of buses coming from Puno

Fascinating that 400 years ago a church was built w the efforts put forth on this interior. Town of Andahuaylillas is friendly and incredibly clean.
