“Fun, lively spot”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We spent an afternoon here, the day before heading to Machu Picchu. We happened to be in the main square on the first day of celebrations of the town's anniversary. The square was filled with adorable kindergarteners, singing and dancing in wonderful costumes! We had a delicious lunch at the Greens Restaurant, and shopped. We also visited the pre-Colombian museum, which was filled with amazing artifacts. The shop there featured beautiful and hand made items, and some of the profits go to local artisans.

“Wonderful, lively town”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

The historic centre is buzzing with people on their way to or from Machu Picchu. There are many restaurants and bars and places to see bands as well as dance the night away. Its a great place to meet like-minded travellers. Love it, and will definitely be back
