San Blas, Cusco
(4.4/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
The historical heart of the city, San Blas impresses with its cobbled streets, antique homes, and wealth of attractions catering to the tourism industry. A blend of Spanish and native influence, the neighborhood overflows with age-old ambience, a result of centuries of habitation by locals and colonial newcomers alike. Ascend the steep hill to the neighborhood's upper portion for sweeping views of the plaza and surrounding city, as well as a chance to view some intricate woodcarving at the temple here. Afterwards, you can find plenty of entertainment and souvenirs in the lower portion, chock-full of hostels, bars, restaurants, gift shops, and backpacker hangouts. Plan your visit to San Blas and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cusco travel itinerary maker.

  • I loved San Blas! It was relaxed and houses the hippy folk of the area. Great handcrafted goodies and stores are cheaper than the main square. 
  • Does not have much special I think, walk ends here, I sat on a bench and that if he sits and relaxed

  • Although it is hard to get there because it is like 3 blocks it cost up to departing from the Plaza de Armas, there is no way not to go. There are days where we offer crafts in the square in the style of a local fair.
