Avenida El Sol, Cusco

3.3
#4 of 23 in Shopping in Cusco
Take a stroll down Avenida El Sol, a busy thoroughfare lined with stores, services, and entertainment. Local street artists turned many of the area's walls into artworks, adding much to the atmosphere of this largely commercial district. You'll find plenty of tour operator offices here, banks, and shops selling everything from local handicrafts to electronics, along with market stalls offering fresh produce and trinkets. Take a break at a bar or restaurant, or pick up a snack from one of the street food vendors.

    It is the main street of Cusco it far from being a place where one can soak up the essence and power of this beautiful and unforgettable city of the Peru. There are a couple of banks, some shops and the most significant are the gardens of the Coricancha Temple in the Temple of the Dominicans. (The latter a PIN of Cusco) It is not a priority, but you can walk when you go down the Temple of the Dominicans.
