Avenida El Sol, Cusco

(600+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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. Put Avenida El Sol and other Cusco attractions into our Cusco vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
