Reviewed October 15, 2012

There are many activities in this plaza. Also, there are many good restaurants surrounding the Plaza. The view to the Andes in the background is amazing!

“A magic place”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Plaza de Armas is one of the best places to be if you are in Cusco. Sit down there to enjoy the magical environment of the belly-button of the world, Cusco.

“Good place to begin”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Good starting point. The cathedral was pretty. You are hit up constantly with vendors trying to sell you stuff, so just sitting in the square to relax is close to impossible
