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!
