Beautiful neighborhood of artisans.

Another beautiful tourist point in the city of Cusco, very close to the main square, when climbing the San Blas slope, you reach this beautiful neighborhood of artisans.
Many of the houses are ancient with colonial details.
The view from here is beautiful.

San Blas the town of artisans.
Jan 2021
Another beautiful place that you need to visit, in the city of Cusco. Close to the main square, when you go up the San Blas slope, you reach this neighborhood, also known as the artisan neighborhood. The view is quite beautiful.
The only negative is that there are some street vendors on its streets.

San blas square.

A good place to rest, but it would be better with fewer people selling here.
If you intend to shop for handicrafts, this is the place since there are many prestigious artisan shops.

A few store a few restaurant and a good place to meet your tour guide. Craft stalls and natives in costumes with their Lamas. Of course if you want a picture you have to pay. The store people and vendors are very forward about aking you to go into their store or buying their wares.

A lovely old part of the city just away from the main square. Really nicely laid out with the fountains and square. Spend some time relaxing
