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

One of the only peaceful, quiet spots in central Cusco. It's home to the museum of pre-Columbian art (a must if you only have time to do one or two things) and to several Relais and no doubt very expensive boutique hotels. But it's great to be in central Cusco where you are not besieged by hooting cars and clouds... More

A small little corner of town, with beautiful colonial buildings on all sides and nice inca walls. Come on a sunny afternoon and just relax and watch people go by.

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.
