Peaceful quiet square, the Pre-Colombian museum is located there, so you will see it on your way to the museum. If you're not into the museum, not worth bothering with.

Part of the fun of travel is to stop and smell the roses. See real people going about their daily businesses. Any bench in a plaza will work.

Tiny and pretty plaza, surrounded by some of the most beautiful buildings in Cusco. Walk around, lots of foto opportunities, nice shops around. Also beautiful at night.

Discovering Cuzco is probably the best and the Nazarenas plaza offered another view to the calm of the city. If you get there, you will also arrive near of the museum of the square and visiting will give you the other vision of the incas history, don´t lose this. You also have nice options to eat aound.

Quiet plaza, not as touristy as the main Plaza de Armas, nice coffee shop, after hours club & Inca artefact museum to visit, or just sit on a bench & absorb the atmosphere.

Typical little plaza of Cusco, at the old part of Cusco, you can walk from there to Pumacurco, 7 Culebras, Cuesta del Almirante, all beautiful streets that look the same as has been in years. Very recommended

Didn't get to have a coffee or see any hummingbirds but it is a very nice square. Near some wonderful museums, galleries, hotels, restaurants and shops, it is in one of the better parts of town. Thought this would be a quick visit but found plenty to do and stayed nearly 3 hours including lunch at MAP.

We found this Plaza by accident, we were searching for the Fallen Angels which is located in this Plaza. We also enjoyed the best cuppacino in town at 'el cafe de mama oli' we enjoyed sitting here and people watching and also hummingbird watching. Great little place.

This small square is located just behind the main square and is a great place to sit and let life pass by. Several luxury hotels in Cusco are located on this square.
