  • This visit is not to be missed, this museum is completely wonderful, maximum Laura looms are some of the most beautiful works of art I have ever seen in my life, and in my opinion, the most beautiful that one can find in cusco. Admission is free, and one can appreciate - and buy - these beautiful looms, are also sold souvenirs and books on the work of the artist, which I recommend. Don't forget to visit this beautiful Museum

  • We enjoyed a wonderful 45 minutes with Paolo who gave us a personalized tour of the Museum which has numerous tapestries by Maximo Laura as well as information on their design and creation. The tapestries are stunning and Paola has excellent English which made the tour a special part of our morning in Cusco with, thankfully, no persistent sales pitch.
  • Beautiful textiles Laura maximum, the exposition has free entry. I arrived there by chance.

Where to stay in Cusco

One of Peru's most visited cities, Cusco boasts lodgings suitable for every traveler's needs. Scores of hotels ensure plenty of comfortable rooms for tourists coming to explore the nearby archeological sites. Despite the abundance of hotels, room rates remain among the highest in the country, especially during peak season (June to mid-September). Budget-conscious visitors can choose from a range of hostels and small family-run hotels, many located in quiet streets just a walk away from the town's central area.
