Just relaxing to sit on one of the benches and watch life pass by. Lots of families and couples on the weekends, feels very safe.

The tour let me see so much of this spectacular place, and it really is not even $3 US. I was overcome by the beauty and spiritual feelings while there. Even though raised Christian, I study Buddhism, Yoga, Druidry, and more, and I don’t care what your faith is, you will feel the presence of what I call The Force and most call God while in this place if you let yourself.

Many may find the beauty in the structures and landscaping - and beautiful they are - but the real marvel of this place is the constant neverending human element - you don't quite know where to look, or what to look at, there is so much happening, and it is all beautiful and alive.

This is a gorgeous city plaza filled with palm trees, fountains and surrounded by colonial Spanish buildings and cathedrals. Lots of people outside despite COVID but such a shame to see so many masks instead of faces. These people don't realize that the virus is not contagious outdoors. Very sad.

What a beautiful square in the old town. A peaceful area to sit and enjoy the world go by. The area is well laid out and plenty of space to chill

This is one of the most beautiful places we have visited in our time in South America. Great central place to get back to and head out for the next stop. Lots of restaurants and shops to rest as well.

So much to see and do! Shopping, tours, spa? A perfect getaway from the hustle of big city Peru! Very relaxing, lean and friendly. A must on your Peru itinerary!

Interesting and one of the few landmarks on the city, the church with its arches give it personality, with stores and restaurants around.
