Owner description: This traditional old quarter of Cusco is the city's most picturesque district characterized by narrow and steep streets, colonial houses built with walls of Incan stone and numerous art workshops.

San Blas is a very nice area to visit while in Cusco. The walk from the main plaza up to San Blas is very nice, with great cobble stone streets, and amazing stone buildings. San Blas is quiet and bohemian, with lots of artists on the streets, and nice vibes.

we stayed almost next to this plaza, its small and cute, a lot of people walk through there. cuscos main square is about 3 blocks down hill from here, so make sure u have confy shoes,, the streets are stone paved and they tend to get sliperry sometimes. you will also see a lot of souvenir shops make sure you dont accept the initial price when they see you are a tourist they tend to raise price ..theres is plenty restaurant close by and a couple of bars...be prepapred for the walks keep in mind cusco is located @ 3300 METERS of altitude . have fun & travel smart

Romantic , touristic , Unique area in center Cuzco . Make sure that you are wearing good NON slippery shoes . Going through involves climbing style walking on slippery shiny stone covered streets . Above the average quality souvenir stores . Do NOT waist your precious daytime hours to visit . instead save evening and/or late evening hour for this . !!! The area gets more ...''alive'' after dark . !!!

A good walk, as its very up and down, but felt safe and nice to walk around in... San Blas is the area right off the main square, behind the Cathedral. Many good little restaurants/delis/bistros with affordable (and healthy and delicious!) fruit shakes, fries, sandwiches, etc.

lovely artists habitat where you can get good coffee. If you're vegetarian head for lila's veggie place in the market.
