Qorikancha, Cusco Reviews

  • Qorikancha is a real cool temple in Cusco with a lot of history. It houses the temple of the sun which showcases some pretty impressive advanced methods used to determine the times of day, seasons, etc. I recommend the guided tour cause there is a lot more to the place than what you can gather by just walking around. Very cool photo opportunities.

  • Entrance is included in cusco boleto turistico. But it's kind of a scam as you only get access to a small dark deteriorated museum with few pieces of old in a stuff. And very confusing and poorly written explanations ( both in Spanish and english). The scaled designs of the place as well as the whole things seems like designed by a 6yo kid. After that you get access to a garden on the back part of the place. But if you wanna access the cool stuff you need to go to the church around the corner and pay again 15 soles ( yes, Peruvians from cusco area are taking your money again and again). Not worth it at all

  • one of the many attractions near the center of Cuzco city. great place to visit with friends and family.

  • It was great to walk in and see the skillful stone work created by the Inca. There is a separate museum underneath that has a totally different entry fee that I'm not sure is worth as much as to see the grounds (although the museum entry is covered in the tourist ticket while the main grounds is not).

  • Avoid 2pm-4pm which is when bus loads of tours arrive and pack the place out. Outside of those times it would be much nicer and easier to appreciate without it being so hectic.
