Cusco is a city alive with history and modern day commerce and tourism. A great mix of Spanish and Traditional architecture. The food and accommodation on offer is astounding.

The plaza is always nicely presented and it's a good place to rest for awhile. Beggars and people selling things do come along frequently but are moved on by local police who are constantly there keeping an eye on things.

I have traveled to Cusco many times, yet I never tire of the peace and quiet of the Plaza, Early morning and late at night are my favorite times to sit and watch the crowds walk by. Smoking a good cigar and drinking a cup of strong andean coffee, the Plaza is a perfect place to absorb the past and enjoy the present. Time flies by so quickly and boredom is never an issue.

This place is full of people at night, shows on the street, people from everywhere enjoying the night. Great vibe!

The plaza itself is great and very well kept, but you cannot stop walking. If you do you will be hounded by 100's of sellers selling everything from fingure puppets to drugs.
