A very Spanish feel to this cathedral. Lots to see but no photography allowed. We visited with three children 10,14&16. Interested In the links to the Inca era having spent 4 days in the sacred valley/MP area before hand.

No need to book in advance. You should be able to get in during the day unless there is a reason that the church is closed.
