  • Witnessed an Al Paca and local people having fun relaxing here. Kind of a central place, that has a familiar look. Easy meeting point. At night some beautiful colored lights illuminate the water at the edge of the square. It looks like the church may be open to go inside as well. Enjoy Cusco! ❤
  • Beautiful and historic place. The problem is you have to pay for every church and historic place in Cusco. It is too expensive.
  • A historic place
  • Must see, lots of history
