Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Plaza Regocijo, a ‘simple’ yet charming square, is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. It might not boast the grandeur of larger plazas, but it captivates with its understated beauty and tranquil atmosphere. The real allure lies in its surroundings - you’re spoiled for choice with restaurants and bars. Whether you opt for a balcony seat to soak in the vibrant street life from above or prefer the ground level for people-watching, the views are exceptional. It’s an ideal spot for a leisurely meal or a refreshing drink after a day of exploration, with the added bonus of glimpsing the city’s hustle and bustle from a serene vantage point.

Plaza Regocijo is very close to the Plaza de Armas. It's very alive, with people walking around and a small market.
Very nice to walk by and relax for a bit.

Right at Cusco's "Centro Histórico", you will find "Plaza Regocijo"! The area was part of the ancient great Incan square known as "Huakaypata", which was occupied and divided by the Spanish conquerors into three different squares - "Plaza de Armas", "Plaza de La Merced" and "Plaza Regocijo", itself. The actual square dates from 1555 and is surrounded by several colonial buildings, with the traditional arcades commonly seen in Spain's similar "plazas". The most outstanding building - the "Palacio del Cabildo" - housed Cusco's city hall and now is the local convention center. Many trees and a colorful fountain complete the scene. Around "Plaza Regocijo", some of the best restaurants of Cusco! Enjoy!

Plaza Regocijo is a very scenic and relaxing smaller plaza just south of Plaza de Armas. We found ourselves returning here several times during our Cusco stay. There is a municipal building with a lovely arcade to the north (peak inside the door to find the unmarked Museo de Arte Contemperano) and a nice restaurant with open air seating to the south. The plaza star is the lovely fountain that glimmers in reflected sunshine. A nice quiet island to relax and people watch.

This block large square is segmented and has a lovely fountain in the middle. It appears, at least today, to be primarily occupied by locals. I didn't see any amount of hawkers as noted in another review, but he was correct, a simple "no, gracias" suffices.

We stopped off in this square several times as our walking tour and trek both had this as a meeting point. Pleasant square surrounded by some interesting building and with a fairly large fountain in the middle

Nice place to sit & relax. The fountain changes colour at night & looks really pretty.

However the street hawkers are a pain. I found myself bothered here more than the main plaza. Men selling 1 sole paintings, woollen bits, scarves & people asking for charity donations. You really have to say no & ignore them. I made the mistake of buying a bracelet then get 4 more people queueing up after lol

There really isn't really much to see here. A small square with some interesting people watching and street merchants with trinkets for sale. Spend 10minutes then keep walking.
