Small picturesque plaza close to Plaza de Armas
Oct 2019
A small plaza few steps from Plaza de Armas, nothing exceptional apart from the relaxing atmosphere of Cusco and some interesting surrounding buildings with a small green area at the centre

Pleasant Park and Fountain Near Arch
May 2019 • Couples
Indeed this is a meeting place for many tours, but it is also a nice spot to spend some time and people watch. It is bordered by an old church, San Francisco, a school, a Roman style arch, and has a nice fountain. It is about 5 minute walk from Plaza de Armas or Mercado de San Pedro so it is probably on your way touring Cusco and worth a look.

Another park

All of the parks are a lovely rest from the hustle and bustle of life, and this one is no different. Lovely fountain and great to cool off if you sit close enough to the spray.

OK Little Square
Jun 2018 • Solo
A nice little oasis in the middle of a criss-cross of streets, about five minutes from Plaz de Armas. Usual walkways, shrubs & trees, surrounded by cobbled streets. In one corner is the wonderful Museum & Catacombs of San Francisco (which is well worth a visit.)

Charming and relaxing
Jun 2018 • Couples
A large square, slightly sloped, where we had a rest during our tiring tour of Cusco. We sat on a bench next to a local family, enjoyed the nearby garden and fountains, looked at beautiful San Francisco Church built in the 16th century. Relaxing.

Recommend going at night

A smaller square than the plaza de Armas which is right beside this plaza, this is a great place for people watching and relaxing. I recommend spending some time here at night as the fountain in the middle changes colours and provides a nice atmosphere. There's a lot of street vendors who are selling random snacks for cheap.

Very basic plaza, nothing special.
Jun 2017 • Couples
This was our first run in with a little woman holding a llama. She wanted 20 soles for our pictures on our phone that we took with her. Kind of crazy, and I didn't have that many small coins but I was not giving her that much. Just a little annoying considered she came up to us and never said the price before the picture was already.

We basically just used this plaza as a walk way to other things

This nice quaint square has many things going for it, it is a hub for transportation drop-offs etc. Many folks pass thru this on way to other plazas nearby. I found perfect eating and sipping places on this square...enjoy!

At night have some local food vendors
Oct 2016 • Solo
Its an average square that you will encounter more local people as it is close to San Pedro market.

At night, there are some local vendors selling BBQ meat, popcorn, and hot drinks. Price is of cause....unbeatable cheap
