A nice little oasis in the middle of a criss-cross of streets, about five minutes from Plaz de Armas. Usual walkways, shrubs & trees, surrounded by cobbled streets. In one corner is the wonderful Museum & Catacombs of San Francisco (which is well worth a...More

A large square, slightly sloped, where we had a rest during our tiring tour of Cusco. We sat on a bench next to a local family, enjoyed the nearby garden and fountains, looked at beautiful San Francisco Church built in the 16th century. Relaxing.

This nice quaint square has many things going for it, it is a hub for transportation drop-offs etc. Many folks pass thru this on way to other plazas nearby. I found perfect eating and sipping places on this square...enjoy!

Its an average square that you will encounter more local people as it is close to San Pedro market. At night, there are some local vendors selling BBQ meat, popcorn, and hot drinks. Price is of cause....unbeatable cheap

Many local tour operators will bring you to here and drop you off around here. Since the car access to plaza de armas is limited, they chose this plaza to be a meeting place. Very close to nice restaurant in cusco. Sometimes you can witness...More

At least for us! Most evenings there was some sort of procession or concert going on, worth a quick stop.
