Avenida El Sol, Cusco

(3.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • too many people trying to sell you things or trying that you change some dollars the police was very noisy all the time, is good to see the Justice palace apart from that there is nothing more  more »
  • It is Avenue if or if they go directly to the plaza. Is an of the avenues with a name rather common, that allows you to be traveled without losing is.

  • There you can find many money exchange (to change coins), handicrafts stores, tourist shops (to buy rides), drugstores, candy stores and food places. Well, I recommend walking, right next to the cultural centre and the Plaza de armas. Does not pay to go by car/taxi.
