Beautiful street

For me, the street is beautiful, clean and really nice to walk over. There are a lot of places to exchange money, lots of tourism agencies and some shops to buy souvenirs.

Spent our one day in Cusco walking around and near the Plaza de Armas. The street venders were very persistant and would follow us. Did not take no thank you for an answer

This is a big road towards the park in the centre of Cuzco. There is an interesting park, connected to the church built on the Inca ruins and a small museum near the centre. .

This is a very long street and changes name too. There is a huge under cover market at the end of this street; the cultural centre is also on this street near these markets, well worth a visit to the show at night. There are several beautiful buildings, lots of arcades with market stalls, foreign exchange, banks, places to eat,... More

Not really a tourist attraction but has a few nice murals, lots of camera shops, post office, some nice buildings, restaurants and a good few banks. If you go to Cusco you will probably walk down this avenue.

Lots of shops, restaurants, bars, markets, big ole buildings and so on. A very good street to just wander down if you aren't sure what to do and just want to pop into whatever looks interesting to you.

Want to get used to altitude? Then walk this street a few times each day. Also lot of money changers and some decent local shopping areas for alpaca sweaters.

We only walked down this street to get to places along the way. I found it to be crowded, super noisy and busy. At least there are traffic lights that allow one to safely cross the street.
