Spent many hours here. All different types of restaurants and things to buy. For better prices go to San Pedro's market a few minutes from the Plaza.

This was a beautiful area to find a place to eat, sit down and take in the views, and take pictures with llamas.

It is a square with arcades that is the true center of the city where all the important events take place, parades, demonstrations, parties... In this square is the Cathedral, the Cabildo and in the center there is a beautiful fountain

There is always something going on in the Plaza, from people selling various Peruvian trinkets to children practising marching! It was an excellent place to sit and people watch!

We stayed about 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armes and therefore stoped by pretty much every day we were in Cusco, for dinner, or strolling, of on our way to other sites. It is a lovely square with two old churches, lots of stores for window shopping or true shopping, and there are lots of restaurants in around and right off the square. every Sunday there is a parade beginning at 8:30 or 9:00 around the square as well.

Definitely somewhere to go and see when in Cusco, nice fountain and areas to sit. you will be constantly approached by people trying to sell items, they are friendly and if you say no will continue on, does get a bit annoying after a while though as cant sit in peace so would recommend taking a stroll through and finding a quieter square to sit in.

Very gorgeous! It is very centrally located so you will most likely see it when you're in Cusco. A gorgeous square that felt very safe and had some good restaurants/stores very central to it.
