Nice and Picturesque Square

This is quite a quiet spot really near Main Square. It's a nice spot to sit down and take some time to talk and rest.

The Plaza de las Nazarenas is the front door for 2 fine hotels and the museum. It has a small seating area. It is a tiny spot of less than a quarter of a football soccer field and is mostly paved. It can be crazy and really noisy and not pedestrian friendly when the traffic is pouring through by the... More

We were in this area on a few occasions while we were in Cuzco and it was just lovely to stroll around and admire the architecture and history, check out the artisans and their wares, or enjoy the lights, sounds and views at night. The restaurants in the area were a bit pricey so we didn't eat at any of... More

There are 2 great hotels where you can stop and have a drink. The architecture is worth going inside. Also the Museo del Arte Precolumbino is worth a visti.

Just 5 minutes up the hill from the main plaza and much more quiet. It´s a small plaza with some luxury hotels, restaurants and alpaca wool shops. A good choise to read a book in a relaxing atmosphere

This is definitely the one place where you can go and just chill away from the city center. The cute little benches were perfect for us to go sit on and just take in the locals wondering around. Great place to go people watch for a few hours and just get away from the buzzing streets of Cusco!

A step away is the special Monestario Hotel one of the best in South America. at one end is a museum containing some of the artifacts from "the Largo Museum in Lima so if you missed it in Lima you can see a teeny bit here. On another side is the Fallen Angel Restaurant and Inn that words cannot describe... More

This plaza is a bit quieter than the bustling plaza de armas and is quite beautiful, particularly lit up at night. It's definitely worth a visit while strolling through Cuzco.

One of Cusco's nicest squares definitely! Tranquil, well-maintained and clean, high-end hotels and businesses around it, it's how all of Cusco should be.

Inspite of being the center of Cusco, you may not find more quaint and peaceful corner than this one. I visited the plaza while taking a trip to the museum and definitely was surprised to see the peaceful ambiance of the square and beautiful view all around. It is lined by the Incan stonewalls and immersed in history
