  • Great and historic place. Colonial Architecture
  • A cute little city square with a fountain in the middle. Some nice shops around it and the Museum of Contemporary Art is there too. Many tour groups meet here in the mornings and evenings. Very safe area. Good place to hang out.
  • Like all the historic sites in cusco this one is also beautifully put together. It is a very nice place to see or relax.
  • Fantastic place. Full of history. Very good restaurants and an amazing view.
  • An appropriate name for this Plaza given it means Plaza of Rejoicing or Patio of Happiness in Quechua (originally called Cusipata). The ancient Incans would use the Plaza to celebrate community festivals of less serious significance to those observed in the nearby Plaza de Armas (called Aucayoata/Wayak Pata or Huacapata in Quechua).

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.
