You will find not only the most famous artists here but it is also peaceful, lovely with the water feature and also to see school children. It is a great place to buy authentic mirrors. I recommend Mendivil two locations very special.

This beautiful square is located in San Blas the Bohemian artistic neighborhood of Cusco. Here you can find several good artisan shops, restaurants and bars with live music. The square also provides great views of the city.
