This is maybe the main building in Cuzco, located right in the Plaza de Armas. It can be visited during mass (6-10am), but be respectful and don't make noise.
Otherwise, you can buy a ticket and do the whole tour, entering by a left side door. "Boleto Turístico" is not admited here, you have to buy the so called "Religious Touristic ticket" that lets you enter a few religious churches and museums.
It was built on the place were once was the Inca Viracocha Palace and used its basement, as well as some big stones from Sacsayhuaman.
There are many beautiful chapels and images, and some important guys are buried here (Garcilaso de la Vega...)
